Study makes case for Haiti cotton farming

Written by John Mowbray

NEW YORK – US outdoor apparel brand Timberland and the Smallholder Farmers Alliance (SFA) have launched the results of a study which looks at the potential for smallholder cotton farming in Haiti. The results make a solid case bringing cotton farming back to Haiti while proposing a new model for introducing small-scale Haitian farmers to the global economy via exports. Cotton was once valuable agricultural export crop for Haiti but it has been hit hard by natural disasters, deforestation and various trade embargoes. The study looked at opportunities of smallholder cultivation of organic certification or participation in the Better Cotton Initiative.
