Cotton can bring bright future to Malawi farmers

Cotton can bring bright future for Malawi farmers and to the country as a whole, the China owned Malawi Cotton Company (MCC) has said.

According to MCC, its core focus is not to make more profits, but to establish cotton production as a lucrative option for Malawian farmers and for the Malawian Government.

The firm is making significant investments in the Malawian cotton industry to back the Malawi Government's initiative of up-scaling cotton to promote cultivation of cotton as a foreign exchange earner.

Also, it is untiringly working with cotton growers across the country to ensure that the desired quality of cotton is produced.

According to MCC, it is helping Malawi framers to adapt and acquaint themselves to the use of new techniques as well as advanced crop and field management strategies to attain desired production levels.

While other cotton ginners in Malawi hire field staff only during cotton purchasing season, MCC has over 350 permanent field staff working with farmers across the country. These officials train the farmers in field management and also supervise distribution of farm inputs like fertilizers, seeds and chemicals that the MCC provides to its farmers, on loan.

MCC earned US$ 20 million in revenues from Malawi during 2010-11 cotton growing season.
