First fortnight of April sees few cotton trades in Brazil

Apr '17
In the first fortnight of April, only a few trades were registered in the Brazilian cotton market and that too mainly for short term deliveries. Growers remained firm were firm in terms of asking prices, although quality of cotton was low, while cotton processors were cautious regarding new purchases, all of which slowed down trade in the fortnight.

In order to meet demand, the user textile industry resorted to purchases from trading companies and traders.

The CEPEA/ESALQ Index for cotton type 41-4 in 8-day payment terms and delivered in São Paulo, declined 0.8 per cent between March 31 and April 13, closing at BRL 2.7429 per pound on April 13.

Data released by CONAB on April 11 informed that despite the 2.6 per cent reduction in the cotton planted area in the 2016/17 season in Brazil, production may increase by 14.3 per cent compared to the previous season, as productivity is expected to increase 17.3 per cent, resulting in yield of 1,583 kilos per hectare.
