Plea for immediate ban on export of maize
Chairman of the Pakistan Poultry Association, Abdul Basit, has asked for a
ban to be put into place on the export of maize, due to the ongoing struggle
with poultry feed prices.
Basit emphasised that if a ban on the export of maize is not imposed
immediately, the price of maize would increase substantially. As a result, the
price of poultry feed will rise pushing the cost of production of chicken and
'Imminent closure of many poultry farms will result in high
prices of chicken meat and eggs, resultantly the price of mutton, beef and
pulses will rise to unprecedented level; he said.
Basit said that to save
the people of Pakistan poultry sector from this imminent disaster, government of
was requested to please immediately impose a complete ban on the export of maize
