Leading cotton agency for India has announced that the country's output will go up from 18 million bales to 21 million bales, this year.

Cotton markets in Pakistan have also been witnessing subdued prices even as fresh stocks hit markets. Record out put provided the crops withstand worms and adverse climatic conditions may give hopes for a repeat this year too, as per industry view.
