Senegal: Cotton and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

MY 2019/20 (August to July) area for Senegal, Burkina Faso and Mali is forecast at 1.56 million hectares (HA), a 12 percent increase from the previous year on the expectation that strong fixed farm gate prices and low input prices (subsidized by the government) may incentivize farmers to plant more cotton. MY 2019/20 total cotton production for all three countries is projected to increase 17 percent from the previous year at 2.83 million 480 lb. bales assuming good weather and low pest pressure. MY 2019/20 total exports are estimated at 2.79 million 480 lb. bales on expectations of strong international demand. This annual report primarily focuses on providing an overview of the cotton sector in Senegal and Burkina Faso. It also includes an abridged analysis for Mali.
