The American Case Company has been a supplier to Turkmenistan since 1994 and 3000 units of special equipment including efficient powerful tractors, combine harvesters and cotton pickers, the regional director for Central Asia and Caucasus of Case New Holland, Stuart Campbell, said in an interview with the Neutral Turkmenistan newspaper.

The company's activity is directed at the development and manufacture of high-tech agricultural machinery, adapted to different climatic conditions.

According to the businessman, cooperation is developing on the Turkmen market with the Turkmenobahyzmat organisation. The company also provides training of local operators and engineers and has established service centres in all regions of the country. The representative office was opened last year.

In 2011, Turkmenistan procured more than 1.050 million tons of cotton and this year sees similar plans. Traditionally, the country exports it to China, Russia, Britain, South Korea, Turkey, Iran, Indonesia, Singapore, Ukraine and the Baltic countries.

The country has planted 860,000 hectares of fields, from which it will collect 1.6 million tonnes of grains this year.
