Aimed at enhancing the economic level of cotton farmers and ensuring an overall development of cotton in India, the project includes value-addition to cotton. Besides, it will also ascertain higher cotton yield, increased profits and reduced dependence on expensive inputs.

This apart, the newly proposed cotton production technologies and the best crop management practices developed by the Central Institute for Cotton Research (CICR) will be circulated through the NAIP mode while test for validation will be done in farmers' fields in and around Coimbatore, Salem, Erode, Perambalur and selected areas in Nagpur and Sirsa in Haryana.
