Pakistan: use wheat for food not poultry feed
The use of wheat as an ingredient for poultry feed
could worsen the present crisis of flour in Pakistan, according to the Ministry
of Food Agriculture and Livestock.
With last year's wheat crisis, poultry feed manufacturers were only allowed
to use maize as one of the ingredients rather than wheat, but because 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.
