Cotton sector yields worrying

BENEDICT TEMBO, Lusaka
STAKEHOLDERS in the cotton sector have bemoaned the poor yield per hectare and resolved that the industry looks to support better quality inputs such as the seed dressing presented by Bayer.
“The cotton farmer wants better yields, higher income, and the ginners want more cotton. It can be a win-win [situation],” Amiran Zambia Country Manager Nigel Seabrook said yesterday.
Mr Seabrook said the biggest constraint to increasing volumes of cotton is the poor yield per hectare.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
