Plan to reduce cotton production in next 3 years

29
Dec '08
Over the years, Xinjiang Agriculture Construction Corporation has formed a single cotton-based agricultural planting structure, due to which cotton cultivation area and production, both have increased in tandem year by year. Cotton cultivation area was 7.50 million Mu in 2007 and has now reached over 7.8 million Mu in 2008.

But, however, at the same time, cotton cultivation costs have increased proportionately. At the same time, as has been witnessed in the current year, prices of cotton in the domestic as well as international markets have gone down substantially and the effects of higher yield has therefore been nullified to a great extent.

Taking the above in mind, Xinjiang Corporation has made a lot of changes in the cropping patterns of the farmers. The cotton acreage area is expected to be reduced by nearly 800,000 Mu (one hectare equals 15 Chinese Mu) from the current year, due to which total cotton output is expected to reach 1,300,000 tons, while grain output is expected to reach 1,380,000 tons, an increase of 14.1 percent.

In accordance with the policy of reducing cotton and increasing grain production, the corporation will try to reduce cotton-planting area to 6.50 million Mu within 3 years and at the same time, grain-planting area will be increased from 3.50 million Mu to 4.50 million Mu, as a result of which total grain production will remain over 1.4 million tons. Cotton cultivation area is expected to be 7.50 million Mu next year.
