Chinese cotton acreage may fall in new season

06
Feb '12
Nearly 40 percent of Chinese cotton farmers might reduce their cotton acreage in 2012, says a report released by a Chinese cotton body.

Despite the government making aggressive cotton purchases for the state reserves, it has not been able to arrest the downslide in prices.

Cotton prices dropped sharply in 2011 compared with the previous year. This coupled with rising costs of growing cotton, has led to an ebbing of enthusiasm among cotton farmers.

According to a survey of the China Cotton Association, around 40 percent of farmers might reduce their cotton acreage in 2012-13 season; the same percentage may maintain their acreage and rest have still not made up their mind.

Based on weighted average intention of surveyed farmers, farmers across China intend to decrease their cotton acreage by 10.5 percent on average in 2012-13.
