Cotton ginning begins.

The final push towards the first export of Sea Island Cotton from Nevis to Japan commenced on May 13, when the New River Ginnery cranked into motion after a four-year suspension, to gin 22,000 pounds of raw cotton, reports Caribbean Net News (May 16, 2008). The Dept of Agriculture decided in 2007 to reintroduce the cotton crop following growing interest and high prices offered by Japanese importers. Small Farm Equipment Pool Manager John Parris, who overseas the cotton ginning process, said the ginnery had received raw cotton only from the government owned farms so far and planned to receive cotton from private farmers for processing the first run early the next week.
