Post forecasts that Zambia’s cotton production will increase by about 25 percent to 50,000 MT in the 2014/15 MY. The area planted is expected to increase by about ten percent to 410,000 hectares as there is a renewed interest in cotton production due to the improvement of cotton prices, the challenges faced with corn marketing in Zambia and the weakening of the Zambian Kwacha, which makes Zambian cotton exports more competitive. As a result, exports of cotton lint in the 2014/15 MY is expected to increase by 11 percent to 43,600 MT.
