Togo should produce 152,000 tons of cotton during the 2019-2020 campaign according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). This is 18% more than the country did in the last season.The whole West African region is actually expected to record an uptrend over the period. The USDA’s expectations align with those of the regional programme for the integrated protection of cotton trees in Africa (PR-PICA which regroups Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Senegal and Togo), whose coordinators recently met in Cotonou, Benin.Indeed, under the best weather conditions, PR-PICA expects cotton output in West Africa to soar 38% reaching 3.4 million tons, with Burkina Faso doubling its output. Mali is expected to record the highest output, a million tons.
