Senegal: Cotton and Products Update

MY2015/16 seed cotton production in Burkina Faso, Mali, Cote d’Ivoire, Senegal and Chad combined, are expected to drop 10 percent compared to the initial target due to a late start of the rainy season. Seed cotton production may remain the same as the previous year at 1.89 million tons for MY2015/16. Burkina Faso remains the top cotton producer with 712,000 tons followed by Mali (550,000 tons), Cote d’Ivoire (426,000 tons), Chad (180,000 tons), and Senegal (31,000 tons).
