Mato Grosso’s biggest challenge in terms of cotton production is logistics, said the Governor of Mato Grosso Silval Barbosa while attending the opening of the 9th Brazilian Cotton Congress in Brasilia, the federal capital of Brazil.
 
According to a statement issued by the government of the state of Mato Grosso, Governor Silval Barbosa revealed that apart from the issue of pests and technological advancement, the fundamental problem for the region in terms of production of cotton is logistics. 
 
Mr. Barbosa said the biggest challenge for the region is the fact that it is in the center of Brazil and far from ports.
 
It is necessary to gain competitiveness in the sector and therefore the government and producers would jointly fight to maintain the productivity level, he added.
 
Gilson Pinesso, the president of the Brazilian Association of Cotton Producers (ABRAPA), said Mato Grosso accounts for over 50 percent of the national cotton production in Brazil, the fifth largest producer and major exporter of cotton in the world.
 
Milton Garbugio, president of the 9th Brazilian Cotton Congress and Mato Grosso Association of Producers of Cotton (AMPA), said the cotton crop in the state is in a phase of transition to technology, but the big concern is the issue of pest, the plague of caterpillar ‘Helicoverpa spp’, which is migrating to Mato Grosso.  
 
The 9th edition of the Brazilian Cotton Congress under the theme ‘Cotton Management and Optimization Results’, was aimed at discussing the cultivation of the product and form guidelines for the next two years of cotton production, as well as address the issue of the pest Helicoverpa spp which is causing damage to cotton crop in various regions of the country.
