CDO distributes greater quantity of cotton seeds this season
Jun '08
Low cotton produce in the season 2007-08 in the northern region has propelled the Cotton Development Organization (CDO) to hand out greater quantity of seeds this season.

Cotton yield last year stood at a meager 9,487 bales from a planted acreage of 135,489. Against this, produce this year is expected to be relatively better, since the farmers have received some 660,000 metric tons of cotton seed from the regulatory body.

While the Lango region including Apac, Oyam, Lira, Amolatar, Dokolo, and Kaberamaido got 412,200 metric tons of cotton seeds, the Acholi region encompassing Kitgum, Pader, Gulu, Amuru, Kabong and Abim, received 206,130 metric tons.

Farmers expressed gratitude for having received the seeds on time as the rainfall has already prepared the soil for planting and there are hopes for bumper harvests in December.

However, some farmers complained that the seeds distributed were not enough as the acreage had also increased. The reason for this can mainly be seen in light of the fact that instead of using one bag containing 3 kilograms of seed per acre, some farmers have been using four kilograms per acre thereby creating a shortage for themselves.
