Indian cotton prices show upward trend
Apr '12
The prices of cotton have risen in Indian markets owing to limited arrival of the crop and demand from textile mills.

The arrival of cotton in the country declined to 85,000 bales (1 bale = 170 kg) from 110,000 bales (1 bale = 170 kg) a week earlier.

In Gujarat, a major cotton producing state, cotton arrival decreased to 20,000-22,000 bales from 30,000 bales in the previous week.

The reduction in arrival of cotton is attributed to farmers holding on to their stock and waiting for the prices to rise further.

On April 27, the price of benchmark Shankar-6 cotton variety rose by Rs. 300 for a candy of 356 kg and was traded in the range of Rs. 33,700 and 34,450 per candy.

In Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, the price of A-grade cotton with low micronaire was around Rs. 32,750-33,300 for a candy, while A-grade high micronaire cotton 29+ MM was quoted at Rs. 33,500-34,000.

The price of raw cotton, too, increased by Rs. 5-7 on April 27 and was traded in the range of Rs. 821-845 for a maund of 20 kg.
