Australian cotton production in 2019 to be less than half
Australian cotton production in 2019 will be less than half of this cotton year despite attractive pricing, according to Cotton Australia, whose managing director Adam Kay said production for 2018-19 was likely to be 2.2 million bales, down from 4.6 million bales last season, due to dry conditions limiting dryland plantings and competition from other crops.

Cotton plantings were, however, strong, he said, because growers regard cotton as it is being allocated water reserves and the best fallow to ensure strong yields and high quality, according to Australian media reports.

He said farmers were managing the drought to the best of their ability.

AgForce Queensland grains section president Brendan Taylor said farmers were mainly saving cotton for their irrigated areas. (DS)
