Jan '17
Total cotton output in 31 autonomous regions and municipalities in China, including the main cotton producing province of Xinjiang, decreased by 4.6 per cent or 260,000 tons in 2016 compared with that in 2015. This decrease was despite the increase in yield per unit area, according to a bulletin released by the National Bureau of Statistics of China.
 
The Bulletin on the National Cotton Output in 2016 is based on the result of nationwide statistical survey in 31 Chinese provinces. The cotton sown area of Xinjiang was acquired through remote sensing survey.
 
The total cotton sown area stood at 3,376,100 thousand hectares, down by 11.1 per cent or a decrease of 420,500 thousand hectares compared with 2015, the Bureau said.
 
However, the cotton yield per unit area amounted to 1,582.5 kg/ha, up by 7.2 per cent or an increase of 106.5 kg/ha compared with 2015.
 
The total cotton output accounted for 5,343,000 tons, down by 4.6 per cent or a decrease of 260,000 tons compared with 2015. (RKS)
