Senegal: Cotton and Products Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SG2021-0012

Harvested cotton area for marketing year (MY) 2021/22 (August to July) in Mali, Senegal, and Burkina Faso is forecasted to increase 93 percent to 1.43 million hectares from the previous year. The growth in forecasted area is mainly due to an increase in the area harvested in Mali, which jumped 382 percent from last year. This increase followed a year-long boycott in cotton production in Mali. Cotton production in MY 2021/22 is forecasted to increase 96 percent to 2.53 million bales based on the expectation of normal rains during the remainder of the season. Total exports in MY2021/22 are expected to increase 21 percent to 2.48 million bales due to rising international demand and exportable supplies. MY2021/22 consumption and stocks remain nearly unchanged from the previous year at 50,000 bales and 22,000 bales respectively. Harvested area and production levels in MY 2020/21 are estimated at 739,000 hectares and 1.29 million bales, a 44 percent and 43 percent drop, respectively from the previous year.
