Zim predicts 500 000 tons of cotton to export

Council president Phineas Chingono said his council wanted to see cotton production increase from 330,000 tons to 500,000 tons.

"We want to return Zimbabwe to its status as the center for good quality cotton production," he said.

Chingono said that, with the increase in the number of players in the industry, Zimbabwe risked losing its status of producing a quality crop.

He said there was need for the government to put in place a regulatory framework to control the cotton industry and ensure itsgrowth.
