Ivorian cotton farmers get raise in mandated price
Summary: 
The Ivory Coast is largely market-based and depends heavily on the agricultural sector. In a bid to increase production in the wake of a unsatisfactory cotton harvest, the Ivory Coast government increased mandated cotton price for farmers by six percent for 2016-17 seasons hoping that this increase will permit an expansion in the number of farmers and bump up production, a government spokesman said.

The Ivory Coast is largely market-based and depends heavily on the agricultural sector.

Ivory Coast, before a 2002-2003 civil war which split the country in two and halved production was one of the region's major cotton exporters, with an annual output of about 400,000 tonnes.

Nigeria sees Bt. cotton as a viable way of engaging with the technology
Summary: 
Delegations from neighbouring Benin and Togo which included farmers, government officials, members of parliament and textile industry representatives visited Burkina to see for themselves how Bt. cotton has transformed the economy. Burkina Faso’s yields and farmers' incomes have risen, chemical use is down, and cotton and cottonseed oil have become major exports, after Burkina Faso's recent fiasco over Bt. cotton fibre length - and the decision by cotton companies to slow adoption while the issue is being resolved - is being interpreted differently in the region.

Zimbabwe cotton output on the verge of collapse
Summary: 
Zimbabwe cotton also known as the white gold had economically uplifted places such as the hot and semi-arid marginalized areas like Gokwe in the Midlands Province. Besides bringing in the much needed foreign currency, the textile, oil-pressing and stock feed industries also benefitted from cotton production in Zimbabwe. But today, the nation cannot talk of a 2015 cotton crop because there is no cotton crop to talk about.
