Cameroon's cotton growers aim 260,000 tons this season

The National Confederation of Cotton Producers of Cameroon (CNPCC) has planned to achieve the target of growing 260,000 tons of cotton for the harvest period of 2013-14, and it would be launching a cotton campaign from October 10, 2013, in the Central African country.
 
In 2012-2013, with the heavy rains in the North and Far North between August and October 2012, large areas of cultivation in the country were devastated due to severe floods.
 
The projected cotton output for the previous season was 250,000 tons and the country was able to achieve around 230,000 tons of cotton.
 
Oumate Ousmane, president of CNPCC, said every year the projections are higher, and for the new harvest season, CNPCC hopes that the anticipated tonnage would be achieved, reports China.org.cn.
 
For the next harvest period (2014-2015) the focus is to achieve 300,000 tons of cotton, he added.
 
However, the 2013-14 harvest period in the country is also affected with severe floods especially in the Kaele and Yagoua regions in the Far North.
 
Mr. Ousmane said the main concern is the collection of cotton, and many farmers have lost a lot of cotton, as the fields are in water.
 
The CNPCC president informed that these floods, however, are less severe than 2012, when about 30,000 hectares of plantations were devastated by storms.
