CCAC revises Pak cotton output down 20% for current season

Pakistan's Cotton Crop Assessment Committee (CCAC) has reduced cotton production estimates for cotton season 2016-17 by 20 per cent, bringing it down to 11.27 million bales (of 170 kg each) from the earlier estimate of 14.1 million bales. The estimate has been revised due to dip in area under cotton cultivation as farmers have shifted to growing other crops.

Punjab, the main cotton producing state, is estimated to produce 7.5 million bales instead of 9.5 million bales projected earlier. Similarly, Sindh's estimate now stands at 3.73 million bales down from 4.5 million bales. Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa are estimated to grow 0.038 million bales and 0.001 million bales, respectively.

CCAC conducted its first meeting for this season with the ministry of textile industry in order to gauge the volume and area under cotton cultivation. It was mentioned that the overall sowing area in the country has decreased by 15 per cent compared to the previous season. In Punjab itself, the sowing area has gone down by 15 per cent. However, Sindh has reported a 2 per cent increase in the same.

Last season, Pakistan missed its cotton production target by 30 per cent and its output decreased to 10 million bales. (KD)
