Turkey is gaining more and more awareness regarding organic cotton production, and would soon become a global brand in the production of organic cotton, said the Turkish Nazilli Cotton Research Station’s manager Sadettin Ozturk.
 
According to Mr. Ozturk, Turkey possesses favorable conditions for organic cotton farming and currently, the country is the largest producer of organic cotton in the world, reports haberler.com.
 
Organic cotton farming is conducted without the use of chemical inputs, and each stage of the production process is carried out through a controlled and certified agricultural method, he added.
 
Mr. Ozturk said that since 1990s, Turkey has been gradually transcending into a stage of producing organic cotton and slowly the country has become synonymous with organic cotton. 
 
Conventional cotton production has a lot of disadvantages, whereas, organic cotton production can translate into several advantages, especially for small cotton growers in the country, he added.
 
Established in 1934, the Nazilli Cotton Research Station under the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock. Known earlier as the Cotton Breeding Station, the institution’s key objective is to develop projects and conduct research for the production of high-quality, disease and pest resistant cotton varieties.
