In October, the cotton of our country is in bolls opening period, except the last ten days of that month appear continuously overcast and rainy in the Yangtze River valley which influenced the cotton picking, it is fine in other cotton districts, the cotton picking progress is smoothly, and already draw to an end at the end of the month.

According to the investigation of China Cotton Association, by the end of October, 88.5% of cotton has been harvested, up by 2.2% from last October. But because of dropping procurement price, the processing enterprise purchases prudently, some areas have already appeared cotton selling difficult problem, the cotton grower presents discontented mood, seed-cotton sale progress is unusually slow.

The average seed cotton purchasing price of standard grade is 5.23 yuan / kilogram transfer to ginned cotton price is 11391 yuan / ton (excluding the processing charges), drop by 0.25 yuan per kg from last month.

As the international financial crisis continues spreading, the main fabrics and clothes importer consumption increasing obviously slow down, even negative growth, the fabrics clothes export of our country falls 3 month in sequence, the export is 16,750 million dollars in October, down by 7% from last month. Meanwhile, domestic consumption is difficult too, the yarn output is 1.861 tons, down by 2.3% from last month, the sale is still depressing, and the price drops with the price of the cotton too.
