Togo: Cotton output soars 17% over the past two campaigns, fails to meet forecast

(Togo First) - Between the 2017/18 and 2018/19 campaigns, Togo’s cotton output soared by 17%. The information was disclosed as the new cotton campaign was launched in Kara, Northern region.

From, 117,000 tons in 2017/18, volumes of cotton produced by the country exceeded 137,000 tons during the past season. While significant, the increase remains lower than expected.

The country had indeed forecasted its “white gold” output to reach 140,000 tons for 180,000 ha of cultivated areas. Regardless, the country nears its 2022 goal, knowingly 200,000 tons.
