Abstract
Although cotton is a major export crop in the URT, domestic cotton farmers received lower prices than what they could have potentially obtained between 2005 and 2010. MAFAP analysis suggests that the following measures would increase prices for producers: • reducing government levies and taxes on cotton producers; and • facilitating investments in the cotton sector to modernize ginning technologies.
