ICAC unveils World Cotton Calendar
24
Nov '14
The International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC) unveiled the World Cotton Calendar, at its 73rd plenary meeting held in Thessaloniki, Greece, this month.
 
The World Cotton Calendar is a huge database maintained by the ICAC and it contains data on all aspects of cotton production field operations, including ginning and picking, from 37 countries.
 
The Calendar also acts as a huge source of information and it provides information on varieties planted and area under each variety, early and mid season insects, narrow and broad leaf weeds, quantity of fertilizer applied and diseases.
 
In addition, the Calendar includes up to five important cotton related activities per month.
 
Access to the information is free and the Calendar will be updated on regular basis, ICAC said. The main page of the calendar shows blue dots on a world map. Data can be accessed by zooming in on a country and then on a region (if cotton is produced in more than one region). A clickable list of data titles appear when a blue dot is clicked. The blue dot shows that the data for a particular country/region is available and can be instantly accessed. (RKS)
