India's cotton output to rise 5% in 2013-14: CAI
Jan '14
Cotton production in India is estimated to increase by 5 percent to 37.6 million bales of 170 kg each, in the 2013-14 harvest period, which began from October 2013 and ends in September 2014, according to the Cotton Association of India (CAI).
CAI states that cotton production in 2012-13 marketing year (October-September) stood at 35.7 million bales of 170 kgs each, reports the Business Standard quoting PTI.

Cotton arrivals in the country till December 2013 increased by 16.8 percent to 11.97 million bales, compared to 10.25 million bales during the same period last season, as per CAI.
According to CAI's estimate, cotton production in the state of Gujarat is expected to increase and reach 11.8 million bales from 8.65 million bales during the previous season.
