Pakistan: use wheat for food not feed

21-04-2008 | |

Use of wheat as ingredient of poultry feed could worsen the present crisis of flour in Pakistan according to the Ministry of Food Agriculture and Livestock.

At last year’s wheat crisis, poultry feed
manufacturers were only allowed to use maize as one of the ingredient rather
than wheat but because the maize was more costly this rule did not work. Feed
millers therefore stored wheat, which could not be used for the flour mills
anymore.

However, according to agricultural experts the recent rain
almost across the country will increase the production rate of the wheat
crop.
