Fodder hectarage climbs by 500 thousand hectares and the levels for sugarcane, rabi fodder, and barley also improve.
Sugarcane faces limited demand and also uses hectarage in both seasons, so it has a high opportunity cost in terms of its land usage.
Crop hectarage in rabi remains generally unchanged, although there are slight increases in pulses and barley and a small reduction in fodder.
First, fodder hectarage will quite likely increase with the added livestock production needed to meet the greater demand as per capita income grows in Pakistan, partly because of the limited ability of livestock to consume low energy roughages because of stomach capacity limitations, but more importantly because of the need to provide green fodder that is constrained by season.
Cotton hectarage is lost when Irri rice production expands, but cotton does not displace Irri rice.
