Why choose INDIA?
India's climatic environment remains conducive to cotton growing: sunshine and recurring monsoons are two essential contributors to a quality annual harvest cycle. In addition, the positioning of the country, close to the equator, offers it a higher quality by the provision of a long fiber raw material: this cotton allows to obtain solid threads, which break less during the operations of spinning and knitting and therefore do not slow productivity.
Conventional cotton cultivation is one of the most polluting for the planet: it uses a quarter of the pesticides sold in the world while it represents only 2.4% of the agricultural area. And the purchase of fertilizers is the main source of debt for farmers and small producers of conventional cotton.
