Kasturi Cotton boasts trash content of less than 2%


Introduced just three months ago, Kasturi Cotton boasts a trash content of less than 2 per cent, a significant improvement compared to the normal Indian cotton's over 3 per cent. 

Dr. Siddhartha Rajagopal, Executive Director, The Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council (TEXPROCIL), overseeing the Kasturi cotton scheme in India, emphasises, the reduction of trash content is a key step towards achieving contamination-free cotton.

Kasturi cotton exhibits superior quality attributes such as lower moisture content, stronger fibers, and a staple length of 29-30 mm, Dr Rajgopal adds.  He highlights the recent interaction between Prime Minister Narendra Modi, farmers, and ginners at the Sustainability Pavilion, where the benefits of cultivating Kasturi cotton, along with its premium pricing through adherence to good practices, were discussed.

The journey of Kasturi cotton has commenced, and we anticipate a gradual increase in its adoption, affirms Dr Rajagopal.
