The possibility of cotton returning as the country's top exporting commodity in the near future has been expressed by the Sudan's Ministry of Agriculture.

The Ministry, in association with the Sudanese Cotton Company and farmers, has made elaborate plans and preparations to promote cultivation of cotton in the country.

To inspect the implementation of the cotton cultivation promotion programme, a delegation of the Agricultural Revolution visited the State of Algezira. During their trip, the delegation also met Dr. Al-zubair Bashier Taha, the Governor of the State, among others.

The Governor assured the delegation that cotton is the top priority for his government. He said that the State will utilize all options to promote agriculture in general, and cotton in particular. He added that cotton (white gold) has the potential to replace oil (black gold) as the country's strategic commodity, after the separation of the southern part of the country.

The Governor promised to take steps to boost the textile industry as it will help farmers to make a good beginning this season.

Dr. Abdeen Mohammad, General Director of the Sudanese Cotton Company, stated that the Company will deal with cotton growers in a transparent manner.

Cotton is not only a cash crop, but it also provides fodder and oil, said UZ Mohammad Osman Al-subaee, head of the delegation. He assured the farmers that prices of cotton in world markets are suitable and they would reap good returns by sowing cotton. “We can expect cotton to again become a top exporting commodity in Sudan, he added.
