Tajik cotton growing area to increase

The area set aside for cotton growing in Tajikistan in 2011 is going to rise by 30,000 hectares, as per the information given by the Ministry of Agriculture of Tajikistan. The ministry sources have revealed that the cotton fields will be expanded by bringing down the planting of other crops, mostly cereals.

The area under corn and rice cultivation will be lowered whereas no mention has been made so far about the reduction of the land under wheat production. The initiative taken up by the farmers of the country to increase the land under cotton cultivation will increase the production of cotton fibre. An area of 162,300 hectares had been put under cotton cultivation, this year and the output was around 310,000 tons of raw cotton.

The raw cotton prices went up to 1,000 dollars per ton in the middle of November, this year. This was the highest price recorded over the period of last ten years. Expansion of area under cotton cultivation and the boost in the cotton production has benefited the cotton growers. It has been estimated that the area under cotton cultivation will increase up to 200,000 hectares in 2011.

Earlier, the area under cotton production used to register a drop of 10,000-15,000 hectares almost every year in the country because cotton cultivation had become unprofitable owing to its low price in the domestic as well as global markets.

The Statistics Agency of the country revealed that cotton fibre exports over the period from January to November, 2010 totaled to 86,400 tons value at $167.6 million. The major importers of Tajik cotton are Turkey, Russia and Iran. The average cotton fibre price registered a year-on-year hike of $835 to $1,940 per ton from that of the corresponding period of 2009.
