Study to trace 'Fall from grace' of ELS cotton

FCStone, LLC which its roots deep in to commodities, dating back to 1924 has announced a new multi-client study entitled 'The future of high quality and branded cotton. FCStone Group, Inc. is a recognized innovator in commodity risk intelligence. Companies around the world depend on its sound risk management strategies to help minimize risk and maximize profit margins.

This study will focus on the main growing countries like China, India, the US and Egypt and will examine in detail, the possibility that, global production of the extra long staple (ELS) cotton has been declining due to the increased consumption of long staple (LS) cotton in recent years and has upstaged ELS cotton by attaining dominant position in consumption of cotton by the textile sector.

It will also do a study and chart the growth of new branded varieties of LS cotton and which has helped raise the quality of cotton crops at a global level, which in turn has reduced the usage of ELS cotton varieties and may also be responsible for the decline in production of this very popular quality of cotton.

The company has observed that US Pima production is falling rapidly along with a drop in acreage of ELS cultivation in favour of LS cotton in China's top cotton producing province of Xinjiang and also a drastic fall by nearly 50 percent in Egypt's output of ELS cotton. This study is expected to help the companies as well as farmers across the whole supply chain of cotton and its products.
