The latest Indian Cotton Federation report for the fortnight ended July 15, informed that a second spell of rain is needed for the standing crop in most of the cotton growing regions of the country.

Quoting market reports, the ICF report added that unsold cotton stock lying with CCI is approximately 56 lakh bales while unsold cotton stock lying with others is approximately 11 lakh bales.

CCI has been able to market approximately 10 lakh bales in the last fortnight of which major buyers have been international traders.

The report also said that the all India cotton sowing report is encouraging with 3.47 million hectares as on at June 25, 2015 and that if a second rain spell happens the sowing will progress further.

While in Punjab and Haryana the sowing has been on time, in Rajasthan there is a delay in sowing due to insufficient rains.

There has been very good and timely rainfall in Madhya Pradesh and in certain areas surrounding Ujjain there have been floods, due to which resowing may be needed.
