Brazil which is the fifth largest cotton producer in the world and also ranks fifth in exports of cotton may see its output of the white gold falling to around 1.2 million tons in the new cotton season 2009-10.

Fibre2fashion spoke to Mr Haroldo Cunha, President of the Brazilian Cotton Growers Association (Abrapa) to learn more about the same. He said, “We are expecting a cotton crop of around 1.2 million tons against 1.6 million tons achieved in the previous year”.

“The main reason for the downtrend in cotton production is that area under cultivation has gone down as farmers have shifted to another crop, soy, which is providing better returns under the current times”, he added by saying.

He continued by saying that, “Farmers have shifted to soy as after cotton is cultivated for 2-3 years, the soil with its rich content of fertilisers is good enough to get a good crop of soy and crop rotation is also good”.
