BCI to train Pak farmers in growing sustainable cotton

Sep '16
Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) will offer training to produce cotton with sustainable practices to nearly 200,000 cotton farmers in Pakistan, particularly in the Sindh and Punjab provinces in the 2017 cotton season. Once trained and a licence is issued, these farmers will be able to sell the raw cotton as Better Cotton in the world market.

Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a global organisation working towards sustainable means of cotton production and is partnered in this initiative by the Australian Government and Cotton Australia.

Cotton Australia will share with Pakistan cotton growers, best practices, skills and experience in a bid to improve the overall standards of global cotton production and increase the world's sustainable cotton supply.

According to Cotton Australia, this is the first time a government outside Europe has contributed to BCI, and sets an example of a global partnership to help meet a complex challenge, with benefits for all involved. (AR)
