Located bang in the middle of Asia, Turkmenistan ranks as one of the largest cotton producers in the world. Although the 1.6 million hectares of agricultural land is vast, it only accounts for a modest 1% of the country’s area. Situated on the Caspian Sea, the climate is baking hot in summer and bitterly cold in winter.
