The ginning plant which became operational in 1997 can produce 300,000 quintal of raw cotton per year. Currently the three most important crops under cultivation are Sesame, cotton and sorghum.

The production and outgrowing of cotton is becoming more important to strengthen the supply of cotton  to the Almeda Textile and Garment Factory.
