Senegal: Cotton and Products Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

This update provides an overview of the cotton sector in Mali, Burkina Faso, and Senegal. Marketing year 2020/21 (August to July) harvested area and production for Mali, Senegal, and Burkina Faso are forecast to decrease 45 percent and 46 percent from the previous year to 727,000 hectares (HA) and 1.2 million bales due to late rains, disincentivized farmers in Mali, flooding, and security issues in Burkina Faso. Although total production is expected to drop, MY 2020/21 exports are estimated to increase slightly to 1.6 million bales on expectations of a rebound in international demand driven by the purchase of old crop in addition to new cotton.
