Egypt: Cotton and Products Annual

Commodities

After years of declining production, Egyptian cotton is again on the rise. A currency devaluation, new policies to increase yields and improve quality and high farm-gate prices are encouraging farmers to expand cotton area and increase production. Under this new economic environment, cotton exports are expected to rise during the coming years, while imports decrease marginally. FAS Cairo expects MY 2018/19 production to reach 420,000 bales, a near 40 percent increase over MY 2017/18.
