A stepping stone to 1 million tons cotton crop

The cotton sowing campaign completed in Turkmenistan in April this year. 550,000 hectares have sown with cotton this year and farmers expect to harvest above 1 million tons of cotton in autumn.

As in the previous years, cotton growers conducted the campaign in compliance with soil and climatic conditions of each region. Yoloten-7 middle stapled cotton variety was sown in Ahal, Lebap and Mary Velayats, 133 cotton variety was sown in all velayats except for Dashoguz, where cotton growers sowed 149F, C-4727, Dashoguz-120 and Serdar middle stapled cotton varieties. C-2606 middle stapled cotton variety along with the other cotton varieties were sown in Lebap and Balkan Velayats. 9871-E, Yoloten-14 and Yoloten-32 fine stapled cotton varieties were sown in Ahal and Mary Velayats.

This year, cotton growers throughout the country conducted ploughing and planning activities according to schedule, irrigated fields and stored 66,000 tons of high-quality seeds. High-powered tractors manufactured by such well-known companies as John Deere and Case and MTZ-80X, MTZ-82.2 and Belarus-1221 tractors were engaged in the important agricultural campaign. According to the Turkmenobahyzmat Association, over 2,200 seeding machines, 35,000 spike-tooth harrows, over 5,000 cultivators and other agricultural machines and equipment were engaged in land reclamation and sowing activities.

The young cotton plants have grown on the most of cotton fields. It should be noted that the work on sterilization of seeds to protect them from cotton diseases contributed to shortening the sprouting period.

On November 7-9, 2011 in Ashgabat exhibition palace “Sergi Kosgi” the 1st International fair of cotton products of Turkmenistan is to take place.

The main objectives of the trade fair of cotton products are: expansion of long-term cooperation with international organizations and companies - end-users of cotton, cotton products, as well as introduction the quality indicators of Turkmen cotton, achievements and prospects in the manufacture of cotton, trade and logistics to consumers.
