On the 10th of May sowing has been completed in all districts covering an area of about 545 thousand hectares which under seasonable conditions and current yields should account for a 1.05 million tons seed cotton outturn for the coming season. Because of persisting weather conditions no replanting has been necessary and good germination is now visible, young plants are looking healthy and medium term weather forecast are encouraging. At the moment, the export sales for the present season have been completed whereas the 2017/2018 sales are expected to start somewhere around mid August, maybe a bit earlier.
