Cotton production in China has declined by 2.2 per cent year-on-year to 6.161 million tons in 2014, according to a Government survey of the country’s 31 autonomous regions and municipalities on cotton acreage, yield per unit area and total output, National Bureau of Statistics said.
 
Compared to last year, China’s cotton output has decreased by 138,000 tons in 2014, the survey concluded.
 
The national cotton acreage this year stood at 4.219 million hectares, which was a decrease of 126,500 hectares or 2.9 per cent compared to last year.
 
However, the yield per unit area increased by 0.7 per cent or 10.8 kg per hectare to 1,460.3 kg per hectare in 2014, the survey showed.
 
In the cotton-rich autonomous province of Xinjiang, cotton was sown on 1.953 million hectares of land. The average yield in the province was 1,882.5 kg per hectare and the net output was 3.677 million tons. (RKS)
