The Egyptian Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation has announced that it is planning to allocate around 367,566 feddans of land (1 feddan = 0.42 hectares) for cotton cultivation in the country during 2014.
 
According to the Ministry, the decision for allocation of the land to cotton farmers in the country was first proposed in an official report issued by the General Administration for Pest Control, and the report was then taken to the Minister of Agriculture and Land Reclamation Farid Abo Hadid for approval, reports Daily News Egypt.
 
Minister Farid Abo Hadid approved the report and the areas for cultivation of cotton were enumerated in order to undertake the necessary procedures to provide the involved regional governorates all needed materials before the start of the agricultural season in the country.
 
According to the data from the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS), exports of cotton from Egypt decreased by 38.8 percent during June-August 2013 period.
 
Egypt exported 91,600 quintal of cotton during the three-month period of 2013 compared to exports of 149,500 quintal made during the same period in 2012. The amount of ginned cotton reached 19,200 quintal during June-August 2013, as against 318,900 quintal of ginned cotton during the same period of the previous season, registering a decline of 94 percent.
 
CAPMAS attributed the drop in cotton exports to decrease in amount of ginned cotton during the season, which declined due to the fall in area under cotton cultivation.
