Tajikistan has harvested about 60,000 tons of cotton on the 185,817 hectares of land as on September 18, said the country's media reports. This presents more than 16 per cent of the production forecast for this year. With the increasing demand of cotton in the region and also for exports, the fields were expanded at the cost of grain and fodder crop areas.

"Cotton harvesting in Tajikistan began in late August in the southern regions of the republic," the press centre of the Tajik agriculture ministry reported.

The Khatlon region collected 45,759 tons of cotton while Sughd region and Districts of Republican Subordination harvested 12,404 tons and 1,250 tons respectively. While in 2017, Tajikistan gathered 380,000 tons of cotton, up by 5.2 per cent in 2016.

Also, cotton accounted for one of the major goods for exports until the middle of the 2000s. (RR)
