On September 9, the cotton-harvesting campaign started in Turkmenistan. The important agricultural campaign was launched with the blessing of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov in the Ahal, Balkan, Lebap and Mary velayats. The “white campaign” in the Dashoguz velayat will start on September 16 due to the local soil and climatic conditions.
Cotton growing is an important sector of Turkmenistan’s agroindustrial complex that makes a profound contribution to the implementation of the state export promotion and import substitution programmes, developed under the leadership of the head of state Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov. Our country has the natural and climatic conditions conducive to growing medium-fibre and fine-fibre cotton varieties.
