Turkmen cotton growers fulfilled the plan to harvest “white gold” by 95%, having collected more than 1 million tons of raw cotton. The tenants of Ahal velayat are leading in the country. As expected, the state order will be fully completed by the Harvest Festival, which is celebrated in the country on the last Sunday of November – this year on November 25th.
The vice-premier in charge of the agricultural sector reported this to the president at a video-conference meeting, the Vatan news program reported.
