Turkey: Cotton and Products Annual

Commodities

Turkish cotton planting and production for Marketing Year (MY) 2019/20 is projected to be about 540,000 hectares and 900,000 metric tons (4.13 million bales). Turkish cotton area and production for MY 2018/19 was 525,000 hectares and 840,000 MT (3.85 million bales) as weather conditions and pest attacks adversely affected production. Domestic consumption in MY 2018/19 is estimated to decline to 1.40 MMT (6.42 million bales) due to the ongoing local economic downturn but expected to recover in MY 2019/20, reaching 1.45 MMT (6.65 million bales). The textile industry continues to be one of the leading sectors in the Turkish economy and the United States remains the top supplier of cotton to the Turkish market.
