No indication of shortfall in cotton output - Textile commissioner

Nov '09
Unconfirmed reports emanating from two major cotton producing states suggested that there could be a shortfall in production of cotton in Maharashtra and Punjab due to attack of pests and adverse climatic conditions, respectively.

In the first of its projections made in August, the Cotton Advisory Board (CAB) had estimated the production of cotton crop to be around 30.5 million bales (1 bale=170 kg), a rise of 5 percent from the output of the previous year, which stood at 29 million bales.

According to unconfirmed reports hot weather and shortage of water has adversely affected the crop in Punjab, while a portion of the cotton crop in a few regions of the rich cotton production belt in Maharashtra has also been affected by a pest attack.

To authenticate the unconfirmed reports, Fibre2fashion spoke exclusively to Mr AB Joshi, Textile Commissioner, Mumbai, who said, “There are still no indications of any shortfall in the cotton production in the country and a meeting is going to be held in Mumbai to assess the crop production on November 13”.
