Senegal: Cotton and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SG2022-0007

Post forecast marketing year (MY) 2022/23 (August to July) area for Mali, Senegal, and Burkina Faso to increase six percent to 1.41 million hectares (Mha) compared to the previous year. However, this growth will depend on the level of government support through the farm gate and input prices which have not yet been announced. MY 2022/23 production is forecast to increase seven percent to 2.62 million bales on the expectation of average rainfall, less pest pressure, and appropriate fertilizer use. Following the Malian producer boycott of farm gate prices in 2020/21, Post estimates that regional MY 2021/22 area and production levels have rebounded, up 80 percent and 91 percent from the previous year to 1.33 Mha and 2.46 million bales, respectively. Post forecasts MY 2022/23 regional exports at 2.57 million bales, up seven percent year-over-year on available supply and higher demand.
