For medium staple cotton, the MSP for 2014-15 crop will be Rs. 3,750 per quintal, an increase of Rs. 50 over 2013-14’s MSP of Rs. 3,700 per quintal.
 
Similarly, for long staple cotton, the MSP for 2014-15 crop has been increased by Rs. 50 to Rs. 4,050 per quintal, according to an official statement.
 
The new MSPs would be effective from October 1, 2014 and would increase investment and production through assured remunerative prices to farmers.
