Business Description of cotton Farming and Processing Business Plan in Nigeria
Business: COTTON FARMING AND PROCESSING
Industry: Agriculture (cotton Farming and Processing Business plan in Nigeria)
PATILAD cotton Farms is standard and registered commercial farm that will be based in zamfara State. We produce cotton a major cash crop that is of social and economic importance to Nigeria. Cotton is a soft and fluffy staple fibre that grows in bolls or protective capsule. We produce high quality cotton that is useful for clothing, household items and industrial products. Our aim of establishing PATILAD cotton farms is not only to generate revenue and maximize profit but also to favorably compete against similar cotton farms both new and existing, and be known as one of the top five cotton farms in Nigeria within five years. In order to achieve this, we have gone the extra mile to ensure that we get the best professionals and also the best equipment so that we will run a standard farm.
We are investing in making sure that we increase the production of cotton seeds that will enhance productivity. We own 15,000 hectares of cotton field and 10 hectares ready for processing facility in zamfara state. The usage of modern agriculture technics and equipment will boost the productivity of the cotton production in Nigeria.
The federal government in September 2012 release 54million to boost mass production of cotton in the country; the federal government also signed a memorandum of understanding with the West African cotton company on plans to revive cotton production in the country. All this is aim at enhancing productivity in production of cotton seeds from 120,000 tonnes to 760,000 by the year 2015. As a result of the neglect in agricultural sector in Nigeria during the oil boom years (1970-1980) was the decline in total food and fibre production and these general problems also affected the cotton industries. Cotton used to be an important cash product in Nigeria. Until recently, cotton was the fifth most important export crop and major source of foreign exchange for the country. Unfortunately total production remains far below the national requirements. PATILAD cotton farms have researched on the major constraints facing cotton farmer and we have been able to solve some of these problems, examples are lack of fertilizer, frequent spray and knowledge of production package e.tc
Asides from the fact that we have secured the required farm land and most of the farm equipment and machines, we have also hired some key employees who are currently undergoing training to be able to fit into the ideal picture of the 21st century cotton farm workforce that we want to build. Our heavy equipment will be leased out to farmers in need of such services at a specific fee. Our storage facilities will also provide storage to other users.
