Cotton farmers who delivered their crop last year have started receiving their cotton adjustment price promised by government.

The Cotton Company of Zimbabwe has started paying cotton farmers who delivered their crop last year the adjustment prices promised by government.

Zimbabwe Cotton Producers and Marketers Association national chairman Morris Mukwe confirmed the development revealing the adjustment prices range up to 10 cents per kg depending on the grade of cotton.

Mr Mukwe expressed gratitude to government’s free cotton inputs support scheme saying farmers are confident of a white gold boom this year as they received all inputs on time.

With the good rains being received countrywide, the cotton association is optimistic that 2017 will be the turning point for the cotton industry to retain its status as one the foreign currency earners following years of poor performance.
