Cotton-lint output may fall drastically - Experts

Jan '10
Cotton-lint production in Tanzania is estimated to witness a 28 percent fall in this season, following the decrease in prices offered to farmers due to global financial crisis. Production may slip down to 89,000 metric tons, against last year's output of 123,000 tons.

The crop produced in the 2008-09 cotton season recorded the second highest output in recent years that brought in $82.8 million revenue to the country, which is the fifth-largest lint-cotton producer of Africa following Egypt, Nigeria, Burkina Faso and Benin.

Despondency amongst farmers for cultivating cotton owing to low cotton prices due to economic crisis, sparse rainfall during growing season as well as less use of pesticides resulted into the current crop reduction.

There are around 500,000 farmers in the country growing the fibre on about 485,000 hectares of cotton in northern, coastal and western parts of the country.
