The National Cotton Association of Nigeria (NACOTAN) will partner with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to accelerate government efforts in resuscitating the cotton, textile and garment (CTG) sector, according to its national president Anibe Achimugu, who recently said the association will ensure farmers are trained about climate change and adoption of new varieties.

The association’s plan is also to ensure that its extension service system is effective enough to support the farmers at any point in time, Nigerian media reports quoted Achimugiu as saying.

He said the association would encourage women and the youth to opt for cotton farming to raise their capacity base from the current 151,000 cotton farmers to 300,000 without compromising on quality.

The association will also introduce the cotton harvest bag, which will reduce polypropylene contamination, he said.

He commended the recently-introduced BG 2567 and BG 25271 cotton varieties by the government.
