Uzbekistan: Cotton and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

As of March 2020, Uzbekistan liberalized the cotton market with a presidential decree. Starting from the 2020 harvest season, State regulation of cotton production, price and mandatory sales plan will be abolished. For the marketing year 2020/21, cotton production area is forecast at about 1 million hectares and production at about 3.1 million bales (about 673,000 MT). In 2019, Uzbekistan grew the first organic cotton certified by a European certification company. It is expected that Uzbekistan's cotton exports will decrease to a minimal level in 2020/21 since domestic use of cotton in yarn production is increasing according to the government strategy.
