Mar '08
The latest U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) cotton forecast for 2007/08 indicates that U.S. cotton exports are projected to remain above last season despite a large reduction to this month's estimate.

The current projection places shipments at 14.5 million bales in 2007/08, the second largest on record. At this level, exports account for over 75 percent of total U.S. demand this season, a record.
