Nigerian firms begin campaign to revive cotton value chain

Dec '15
Nigerian companies Synergy Cotton and Agro Allied have started a campaign along with farmers in Kano to revive the cotton value chain in the country in collaboration with a UK based firm, according to Nigerian media reports.

Dr. Adebayo Jimoh, chairman, Synergy Cotton and Agro Allied, said in a seminar that they will be replicating the value addition programme in Kano, which was successful in Uganda, Mozambique, and Malawi, in order to revive cotton and create more jobs.

The cotton production in the country has decreased which could lead to shutting down of textile industries and unemployment said Nick Earlam, chairman, Plexus Cotton. He emphasised that the private enterprises, development agencies, and the government need to work together to reach the production target of 100,000 metric tonnes of cotton in the coming two years.

The campaign will use technology and provide incentives to farmers to add value to the crop and boost the production. (HO)
