Oct '16
At its first meeting for the cotton season 2016-17, the Cotton Advisory Board has forecast all-India cotton yield to increase to 568.29 kg per hectare compared to last season's 483.79 kg. The average per hectare yield for south zone is forecast at 690.88 kg while it is 668.06 kg in north zone. The yield is expected to go up to 512.12 kg in central zone.
 
The meeting held under the chairpersonship of textile commissioner Kavita Gupta deliberated the cotton scenario and also discussed state-wise area, production, import, export and consumption of cotton.
 
According to the provisional balance sheet drawn by CAB for cotton season 2016-17, cotton production is estimated at 351 lakh bales of 170 kg each. With last year's carry forward stock of 43 lakh bales and likely imports of 17 lakh bales, the total cotton supply for the season would be 411 lakh bales.
 
Of the expected production of 351 lakh bales, a major share of 205 lakh bales would come from central zone comprising Gujarat, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, CAB predicted. 
 
On demand side, mill consumption is expected at 275 lakh bales, small scale unit consumption at 28 lakh bales, non-textile consumption at 10 lakh bales, and exports at 50 lakh bales. Thus, total demand would be 363 lakh bales leaving a closing stock of 48 lakh bales, the CAB said. (RKS)
