Australia to have highest cotton yield in 2013-14: USDA
Nov '13
Australia is projected to have the world’s highest cotton yield at 2,107 kg per hectare during the 2013-14 season beginning August 1, 2013, according to the latest report ‘Cotton: World Markets and Trade’, released by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The November 2013 report brackets Turkey, Brazil and Mexico to have nearly the same yield estimated between 1,450 kg per hectare and 1500 kg per hectare during the ongoing season.
With cotton grown on 5.1 million hectares of land, the expected yield in China is likely to dip to 1,387 kg per hectare this season compared to previous season’s yield of 1,438 kg per hectare, as per the report.
On the other hand, cotton yield in India is expected to be only 540 kg per hectare in 2013-14, slightly higher than last year’s yield of 517 kg per hectare. The area under cotton is projected to decline marginally from last season’s 12 million hectares to 11.7 million hectares this season.
Syria and Greece are the other countries that are likely to have cotton yield higher than the United States, which is projected to produce 906 kg of cotton per hectare this season.
In terms of total cotton production, China and India are likely to lead with expected output of 32.50 million bales and 29 million bales of 480 lb each, according to the data. These two countries would together account for more than half of the global cotton production.
The US, Pakistan and Brazil’s cotton production for the current season is pegged at 13.11 million bales, 9.7 million bales and 7.4 million bales, respectively, the USDA report said.
Total world cotton production in 2013-14 is forecast at 117.22 million bales from 33.14 million hectares of land, at an average yield of 770 kg per hectare.
