Farmers anticipate bounty cotton output

An abundant production of cotton, despite few shortcomings, is being anticipated by the farmers of Rajshahi Division, this year. At this time, cotton fields are flourishing everywhere, which gives the possibility of a good amount of cotton output, as per official sources.

This year, the production target of cotton has been set at 18,760 tons from 12,792 hectares of land in the division, while last year this target was set at 15,000 tons of cotton from 9,700 hectares. Whereas, for the country as a whole, cotton production was targeted at 49,000 tons from 40,000 hectares, as per Cotton Development Board's (CDB) report.

With a view of having bright prospects and to avail more benefits, the farmers are showing interest in growing this crop. During mid-July to mid-August, the sowing of cottonseeds had been undertaken, while in months of January and February, the fibre is harvested.

Heavy rainfall in the month of October last year and water logging took their toll on cotton fields in the areas under four cotton zones as per the reports from the extreme northern region. In spite of this, the production target of cotton is expected to be achieved.

In addition to this, experts say that the cotton production in the country could increase two-fold on account of favorable soil conditions and suitable climate. Presently, only 12 percent of country's entire cotton requirement is fulfilled by the cotton produced in the country, while to meet the rest of the requirement; cotton is being imported from foreign countries.
