Caption :
Not far from the municipality of Diaramana, in the Segou region of Mali, the cotton harvesting campaign has begun. The seed cotton harvested in the different surrounding fields is centralized in one place. Young workers fill large bags of cotton and throw them into a dumpster. There other workers tamp cotton with their feet. A truck will then load the bucket to bring it to the mill, a step of separating the cotton fibers from the seeds that carry them. Cotton Campaign in Mali 2019-2020. While the harvest began in virtually all areas of production, Mali, which had set a goal of 800,000 tons of seed cotton, is now reducing its forecasts. If at the launch of the campaign plan last April, the Minister of Agriculture Moulaye Ahmed Boubacar expects an increase of 22% over the previous year, it could be that this campaign is quite poor and hardly exceeds the 600 000T and this despite an increase in cultivation areas. Figures are falling, mainly because of sparse rainfall but also late delivery of agricultural inputs. In Mali, cotton grown on more than 650,000 ha by about 162,000 producers represents 22% of the country's exports. The cotton season allows the creation of many seasonal jobs and it is estimated that nearly 4 million Malians derive their income from cotton farming, which plays a very important role in the socio-economic development of the regions concerned. Mali, which is also suffering a fall in the price of cotton globally, could lose its place this year as the leading producer of seed cotton Africa, at the expense of its neighbor Burkina Faso.
