What are agricultural textiles?

Agricultural textiles refer to the products or byproducts made from natural sources like wool, cotton, and other fibres, typically used in industries ranging from clothing to construction.

What regulatory concerns must textile and fibre farms consider?

Textile and fibre farms must consider regulatory concerns related to environmental impacts, such as deforestation and waste management. Compliance with laws governing sustainable land use, reducing deforestation, and managing waste effectively is crucial to mitigate negative environmental effects and adhere to international ecological standards.

What are the predominant trends in the agro textiles industry?

The agro textile and fibres industry has seen a rapid shift toward sustainability and eco-friendliness, in response to consumer demands for more responsible practices, as well as traceability throughout supply chains.

What challenges does the textiles and fibres industry face?

Textile and fibre production is often limited by geographical constraints, with crops such as cotton only growing in climate specific regions. This encourages monoculture farming, and a high dependence on imports and exports throughout the industry. It also leaves businesses prone to supply and price fluctuations.
