Turkmenistan harvests over 1mn tons of raw cotton
Oct '12
Although cotton harvesting campaign is still in progress, over one million tons of raw cotton has already reached Turkmen procurement centres by now, Turkmen Dovlet Khabarlary, the state news service reported Turkmen Agricultural Ministry as saying.
As against last year’s harvest of about 1.1 million tons, it is intended to reap around 1.109 million tons of raw cotton from 500,000 hectares, during the ongoing cotton harvest campaign that kicked off towards end of August, the Ministry said.
Favourable weather conditions during the cotton growing season helped Turkmen cotton growers to harvest good crop. 
In Turkmenistan, cotton output, including cotton, lint and uluk, is sold through the State Commodity and Raw Materials Exchange of the country, while timely payment is being made to cotton growers through state commercial Daykhan bank branches.
Turkmen cotton is traditionally exported to Russia, South Korea, China, Turkey, the UK, Indonesia, Ukraine, Iran, Singapore and the Baltic countries.
