Cotton output projected to fall 11%

India's Cotton production is estimated to fall 11 per cent to 335 lakh bales in the current year due to lower acreage and drastically lower yields, according to a report by Edelweiss Agri Research.

Acreage under cotton is down by 7.5 per cent as fall is witnessed across the states due to poor return during the previous season.

According to the report, overall yields are expected to come down by 3.8 per cent, largely because of a 35 per cent reduction in yields in North Indian states year on year, the report said. Punjab and Haryana have suffered major damages due to whitefly attack on cotton crop.

Yields are expected to remain higher year-on-year in Gujarat, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh while yields in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana region are expected to be lower by 1.5 per cent.

Karnataka has seen acreage shrunk by 24.3 per cent on reduced sowing activity in major growing districts.

Realization to farmers on their own land is positive across cotton growing states, while those working on rental land are making loss in Maharashtra and North India, the report said. (SH)
