Textile industry labourers plan expansion for improved output
Jun '10
This year, favourable conditions of weather and surge in manufacturing of cotton, has tempted the factory owners to plan out their expansion plans and has thereby, also increased hopes of the Indian textile industry.

Apparel producers, yarn producers, cotton factory owners, traders and farmers, are elated over the estimated figures of manufacturing of 32.5 million bales in 2010-11, as against 29.5 million bales last year.

Meanwhile, a textile producing company is sure of smooth implementation of their expansion plans. This company consumes almost one million cotton bales, which is about 3 percent of the country's overall cotton production, annually, and also has new projects marked out for the future.

Apparently, the entire, Indian supply chain of cotton textile industry is positive over the prediction of improved cotton harvest this year.

As per a Gujarat-based trader, the pre-monsoon showers, which resulted from the cyclone Phet, in Punjab and Haryana, has aided farmers by protecting their crop from excess heat. Whereas, Gujarat-based farmers located in the coastal areas have benefited, as they can sow the crop in advance.

As per a farmer in the Bhatinda belt of Punjab, rains will help dissolve salt accumulation in the cotton crop soil, which arrests cotton sapling growth.

Crops in Northern states, which contribute about 12 percent to the country's overall cotton output, are getting adversely affected by an exceptional temperature of 45 degrees. However, due to improved cotton crop, ginning factory owners are most likely to increase their capacity utilisation by 10-15 percent.

As per few members of the Ministry of Agriculture, the area under cotton is probably going to rise by 8-10 percent across the country. This is due to the premium, which is of about 20-25 percent, for the cotton crop, over and above their minimum support cotton price.

Farmers of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharashtra are intending to harvest cotton instead of groundnut and soya bean, due to its better returns.
