Bangladesh plans seven-fold hike in cotton output
Aug '14
The Bangladesh has approved a Taka 105 crore proposal, which will help annual cotton output in the country to soar seven-fold by 2018.

Currently, Bangladesh produces only 100,000 bales of cotton, which meets only 3 percent of the annual requirement of the textile mills in the country, the Daily Star reported.

By implementing this project, it is expected that cotton production in the country will touch 700,000 cotton bales.

By means of planned cotton farming, output will be hiked by implementing the project in 35 upazilas under 10 districts.

If the project is implemented properly, it is expected that the enhanced cotton production will be able to meet around 20 percent of the Bangladesh cotton demand.

Cotton farmers will be provided high quality seeds, advice on best practices and also be taken on motivational tours to other cotton producing countries, under the project.
