Togo expects 20% increase in 2017-18 cotton output
Togo, a West African nation on the Gulf of Guinea, is expecting production of 130,000 tons of cotton during the ongoing season 2017-18 that began in May this year. This will be an increase of 20.37 per cent over last season’s cotton output of 108,000 tons, according to the estimates released by the Nouvelle Société Cotonnière du Togo (NSCT).

The expected increase in production is due to cotton being sown on 170,000 hectares compared to the planned sown area of 160,000 hectares. In addition, the Togolese government is also making efforts to boost the country’s cotton sector.

Meanwhile, NSCT has announced the minimum price of CFA240 ($0.44) for first grade cotton and CFA220 ($0.40) for second grade cotton, a news agency reported.

In view of the expected increase in output, a fifth ginning plant has also opened this year in addition to the four ginning plants already operational at Notsè, Atakpamé, Kara and Dapaong.

The Togoloese government is aiming to increase the country’s cotton output to 220,000 tons. (RKS)
