Upward trend in cotton market to see small fluctuations
Jan '08
The Cotton Advisory Board which met on 11.01.2008 estimated the cotton crop volume at 310 lakh bales for the year 2007-08 against the cotton crop of 280 lakh bales for 2006-07 season.

The All India yield per hectare is estimated at 553 kgs per hectare for 2007-08 compared to 520 kgs per hectare for 2006-07.

The state wise analysis shows an increase in yield per hectare in most of the states which have established greater adaptability of technology by the cotton farmers.

However there are abundant scope for further improvement in yield per hectare, so that cotton farmer will be able to sustain the increased yields.

Mr.J.N.Singh, Textile Commissioner, mentioned that there are no plans to ban exports as per press reports. The increases in cotton prices are expected to slow the growth of cotton Mill use compared to 2006-07.

All India arrivals are reported to be around 175 lakh bales so far, compared to the 148 lakh bales during same period last season.

The third lecture of Shri G.K.Sundaram Endowment lecture series was delivered on 10.01.2008 by Prof. M.S.Swaminathan, Chairman, M.S.Swaminathan Research Foundation and National Commission on Farmers in Coimbatore, on the topic, Indian Agriculture.
