NATIONAL cotton deliveries by farmers have reached 120 000 tonnes, surpassing this year's target by 20 percent

Related Keywords: Cottco, cotton, cotton deliveries, farmers, Free Cotton Inputs Scheme, high cost of inputs, wool packs, yields and crop quality

Zimbabwe
Summary: 
The Government’s Presidential Free Cotton Inputs Scheme has helped the vulnerable marginalised farmers who have been suffering from the high cost of inputs and low producer prices at the same time getting their yields affected by the negative effects of climate change. The farmers have responded positively by “going back to the fields” and are producing cotton whose volume has been constantly growing. Given that the output was on a free fall, the interventions by the Government came at the right. This year, Cottco is targeting to provide support to 400 000 farmers, up from about 380 000 farmers last year, this year. The early distribution of inputs would help farmers to plan ahead, unlike in previous seasons when some farmers would receive inputs late.
