Senegal: Cotton and Products Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SG2022-0011

For Marketing Year (MY) 2022/23 (August to July) harvested area for Mali, Burkina Faso, and Senegal is forecast to increase eight percent to 1.44 million hectares (MHA) compared to the previous year. This increase is largely due to significant subsidies on fertilizers (NPK and Urea) from the relevant governments and the private sector, along with strong farm gate prices which motivate farmers to plant more. The MY 2022/23 production level is forecast at 2.60 million bales, representing a six percent increase compared to last year based on an expectation of typical weather conditions, less pest pressure, and appropriate use of fertilizer. Post forecasts total exports to increase 32 percent to 2.88 million bales based on available supplies. The 2021/22 area and production levels are estimated to increase 80 percent and 91 percent at 1.33 MHA and 2.46 million bales, respectively.
