Community Driven Development Association (CDDP) together with Upper River Region (URR) Cotton Growers Association, had just recently held a two-day training workshop for the cotton farmers on production of cotton, at the Hela Kunda Village, Jimara district in Basse.

The workshop attracted about 50 participants from across URR and was aimed at improving the production of cotton in the region, thereby, also convince them to cultivate more cotton.

Participants were also able to explore other important mechanisms, which can be utilised to improve and harness productivity of cotton, such as application of the right fertilizer, sowing, weeding and spraying.

The workshop also managed to create a firm platform for participants, to just casually discuss a wide-range of ways, as they move forward in cotton production in URR and beyond.

As per Omar S Ceesay, Chairman, Basse Area Council and Secretary General of Cotton Growers Association, the training will provide greater opportunities for farmers to involve themselves in cultivation of cotton.

Further more, Ceesay also informed that, off late, production of cotton has turned in to an extremely creative business and has therefore encouraged cotton growers to shift back to cotton cultivation.

In his speech, Ceesay also spoke about the government's efforts taken to strengthen farmers. Owing to this, Ceesay has invited the private sector to enter in to a joint venture with the government, so as to improve production of cotton in the nation.

Participants were also requested to make the best use of the training imparted to them, by further sharing it with their fellow cotton farmers, who were misfortunate to have missed the training, averred Ceesay.

Speaking on behalf of the Chief of Jimara District, Alhagie Abubacarr Camara pinpointed the importance of cotton production. He too requested the cotton farmers to revive their sense of commitment in cotton production.

CDDP was thanked by all key officials for their efforts, towards creating awareness amongst cotton farmers, on the importance of cotton production. Cotton farmers have been urged to be patient in cultivating cotton and have called in for government's support to alter cotton production in to a more beneficial business venture in Gambia.
