China announces cotton subsidy to farmers outside Xinjiang
07
Nov '14
The Government of China has announced subsidy of 2,000 yuan per ton of cotton to farmers in cotton producing areas outside Xinjiang in 2014-15 season.
 
The subsidy will be offered in nine provinces—Shandong, Hubei, Hunan, Hebei, Jiangsu, Anhui, Henan, Jiangxi and Gansu, China Cotton Association said.
 
From next cotton season onwards, the subsidy in these provinces will be 60 percent of the subsidy in Xinjiang, the main cotton producing province in China. However, the upper limit for such subsidy will be 2,000 yuan/ton.
 
The China Cotton Association has urged farmers to take their crop only to registered cotton purchasing and processing enterprises.
 
Earlier this year, China replaced its temporary cotton purchase and storage policy with direct subsidy to famers. In Xinjiang, subsidy will be given to growers if the market price of cotton falls below 19,800 yuan/ton. (RKS)
