AMSTERDAM - The Organic Cotton Accelerator (OCA) initiative has joined forces with retailer Tchibo, textiles supplier Dibella, Fairtrade Germany and the German development agency GIZ for a new pilot project in India.

More than 500 cotton farmers in the Indian states of Odisha and Telangana will receive financial support, training in organic cotton cultivation and non-GM seed with the aim of harvesting 250 tons of organic cotton - and cotton from fields in conversion - per year.

The pilot will support farmers in the Fairtrade co-operative Chetna with extensive training in efficient organic farming methods designed to promote capacity building in smallholder organic cotton production.
