Technologies Improved Production Technology For Cotton

Under TN-IAMWARM project, it has been proposed to increase the productivity and quality of cotton in Arujunanadhi sub basin, for which assured market linkages are available in this basin.  Introduction of hybrids in the sub basin would offer better solution to the cotton growers for getting better price with superior quality produce. Under this concept the demonstration on improved cotton production technology was proposed by TNAU under mission mode concept.
