Organic Cotton Does Well In Tanzania

According to a news report in Ecotextile, African organic cotton project bioRe has forecasted a great harvest of organic cotton in Tanzania for the cropping season of 2012/2013.

According to a statement from bioRe, this increase in yield is primarily due to the rain. “The rainfall period usually lasts from November to February, followed by a drought until March. Duration of rainfall from March onward is the key. This year has seen good rain fall from mid-March until mid-May, which resulted in the record crop substantiated by these figures: on average, 313 kg of organic cotton will be harvested per acre versus only half as much last year, i.e. 177 kg,” says bioRe.
