Senegal: Cotton and Products Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

MY 2016/17 seed cotton production from the selected West African countries (Burkina Faso, Mali, Cote d’Ivoire, Chad, and Senegal) could reach 1.9 million tons (3.6 million bales) representing 19 percent increase compared to previous year’s. Burkina Faso did not plant Bt cotton in MY2016/17 campaign due to unresolved issue between Monsanto and cotton stakeholders regarding the short fiber length that reduced fiber quality. Consequently, Burkina Faso cotton fiber prices decreased at international market and so did farmer’s revenue. Nevertheless, Burkina Faso forecast a 20 percent increase compared to the previous year with 700,000 tons of seed cotton followed by Mali (629,000 tons), Cote d’Ivoire (360,000 tons), Chad (171,000 tons), and Senegal (20,000 tons). Cote d’Ivoire farm gate price is the highest in the region (265 F CFA - $0.44 per kg).
