In order to encourage business organizations of the northwestern coastal region of Piura in Peru, to optimize cotton production costs, productivity and price, the Peruvian Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation (MINAGRI), in coordination with the Piura regional government has launched a Competitiveness Plan for Cotton Campaign of 2013-2014.
 
According to a statement issued by MINAGRI, the Ministry believes the cotton plan launched in the region is an opportunity to take forward the cultivation of this valuable crop, taking into consideration that the region has the proper infrastructure and trained professionals who can ensure proper cultivation of the crop.
 
The 2012-13 cotton campaign in the region was successful in the view of preventive measures and optimal climatic conditions, which contributed towards the success of the campaign, aiming to boost the income of local farmers and improve their standard of life, as per MINAGRI statistics.
 
According to MINAGRI, the competitiveness plan will be implemented in two stages: the first stage involves improving irrigation infrastructure and technology to promote the competitiveness of cotton production and providing technical assistance with behavioral studies in the domestic market of cotton fiber, as well as financing the program for the execution of cotton crop campaign for 2013-14.
 
The second stage involves activities in the medium and long term genetic improvement for the variety of Tanguis and Pima cotton crops, implementing the adequacy of the Consolidated Text of Regulation Cotton Crop to each valley of the region in order to achieve efficiency in plant management, as well as construction of innovation centers for cotton in the region.
 
Augusto Aponte, director of promotion for MINAGRI, said the Directorate General of the Agricultural Competitiveness (DGCA) would be funding the cotton campaign plan for 2013-14 via AGROBANCO Peru, and would be financing it under two components.
 
The first component would be granting funds with subject to the application of Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) for farmers and the second component would have reimbursable financing for cotton growers, he added.
 
Mr. Aponte said under the GAP funding the amount would cover the costs of machinery for land preparation, certified seed and fertilizers, technical assistance and administrative expenses, whereas under the reimbursable funding the amount would be given for provision of inputs and services of machinery, fertilizers, chemicals, water and labor.
