Punjab Agriculture Department (PAD) has advised the sugarcane growers to put aluminium phosphide pills in pit holes of rats to save the crop. These pills produce a gas which kills rats in their holes. A spokesman of the department said here on Friday that this year sugarcane had been sown on 1.79 million acres of land and production target has been set at 41 million tons.
He said it is very important that sugarcane crop should be saved from the damages at this juncture. He said rats attack root and stem of the sugarcane crop and causes severe damages. Courtesy Business Recorder
