Katsina cultivates180,000 hectares of cotton

Speaking in an interview with newsmen in Katsina, Alhaji Musa Funtua said more hectares would be cultivated this year as over 196, 000 cotton farmers have been registered this year in Katsina under the federal government’s cotton production program.
He said 23 of the 34 local governments of Katsina state are cotton producers, adding that the state has nine ginneries, which he said are the major buyers of cotton in the state.
He said as part of its efforts to boost cotton production, the federal government has signed MoU with the West African Cotton Company (WACOT) for provision of improved seedlings for cotton farmers in the country.
The commissioner said cotton farmers in Katsina state are receiving free seedlings, insecticide and herbicides from WACOT, courtesy of the partnership between the federal government and the company.
He pointed out that Katsina state government on its part will establish a marketing board in the state, pointing out that, “A committee under the former President of Court of Appeal, Justice Mamman Nasir has already submitted its report to government concerning the establishment of the board.”
He said cotton farming is contributing immensely to the economy of Katsina state, adding that “Recently, Malumfashi local government branch of the Keystone Bank disclosed that it transacted over N2 billion cotton business in the area. This is to tell you that cotton business is boosting the economy of the state.”
