Organic & Regenerative Cotton Farming In Egypt Reports Progress

Performance fabric manufacturer Ventile has made further progress in an ongoing joint venture that supports organic and regenerative cotton farming in Egypt.

Efforts of Ventile and Egyptian Biodynamic Association (EBDA) to create a chemical-free soil environment at two farms located in the Nile Delta region of Egypt have been a success.

They said that independent lab results show significant changes in the composition of the soil structure, including improvements in texture, soil stability, and aggregation.

The activity has been carried out as part of the journey to implement biodynamic farming methods at the two farms.

In a bid to establish self-sustaining farms using biodynamic principles, the land has been cultivated to improve soil health, through enhancements in soil organic matter, microbial activity, and soil fertility.

The primary objective of the project is to support the production of high-quality, ethical and regenerative-grown organic cotton to meet the increasing demand in the textile industry.

Early indications show that the long-term productivity and quality of cotton from the farms are expected to increase significantly, with cotton yield increasing by 157 kilos per acre in the first year.

Ventile is a Switzerland based high-performance fabric manufacturer known for producing a tightly woven, 100 percent cotton fabric that is breathable, durable, and weatherproof.

The fabric is made from long-staple cotton fibres that swell and interlock when they come into contact with water, creating a barrier that is highly effective at repelling water and wind.

Ventile fabric is popular in outdoor and performance clothing due to its natural properties, including being windproof, highly breathable, and comfortable to wear.

It is used in garments where protection from the elements is essential, such as jackets, trousers, and outerwear.

Additionally, Ventile fabric is known for its sustainability, as it is made from natural materials and is biodegradable.
