Mato Grosso completes cotton planting on 63.7% of acreage

Jan '14
Cotton planting in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso has been completed on 63.7 percent of the estimated 582,000 hectares of land to be cultivated for the crop, as per the Institute of Agricultural Economics of Mato Grosso (IMEA).
 
According to the latest weekly newsletter of IMEA, cotton has been planted on 370,779 hectares of the total land planned for sowing, representing around 63.7 percent of the 582,000 hectares of land.
 
However, the IMEA states that last week, cotton planting was hindered in the state due to intensive rainfalls at irregular periods, which caused difficulty for cotton growers in handling the machineries for sowing.
 
Last week, cotton growers completed planting of cotton on 53.6 percent of the planned acreage, indicating that cotton planting in the state is moving at a fast pace compared to the last season despite the heavy rainfall.
 
Earlier in January, the National Supply Company (CONAB) estimated that cotton exports from the Brazilian state is expected to decline by 38 percent to 270,000 tons in 2014, owing to the fall in demand from China, which is the largest importer of cotton from Mato Grosso.
