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 from Pakistan.
