In Turkmenistan, tenants of cotton farms have been authorized to sell excess quantity of cotton through the Commodity Exchange.

The President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov announced the decision at a cabinet meeting after heads of regional administrations informed him about preparations on sowing the crop.

He said “Prices of cotton have touched US $5,000 per ton as they have increased steadily in world markets. So, we are introducing a new scheme, under which farmers can sell their surplus crop through the Commodity Exchange, after fulfilling their obligations to the state”.
