The cotton is also grown on small farms to support the local agriculture and to fight the monoculture of low value products such as the tobacco. Because this cotton product is pest resistant there no need to use pesticides .

This helps the farmers to save their crops and to provide the financial support so needed as it is their only source of income.

The planting of natural cotton is concentrated in the upper hinterland of Brazil, characteristic of local family farming.

The productivity of naturally colored cotton is lower and it is harvested manually, unlike conventional cotton.
Therefore, they are compensated by the above-market price received by the producer.
