CITI refutes govt figures on cotton output

17
Jul '09
The Ministry of Agriculture had recently announced that the domestic cotton production in the cotton year 2009-10, is expected to reach 26 million bales (1 bale=170 kg), 10 percent less than that achieved in the current cotton year.

However, experts from the textile sector have rubbished those figures by saying that production of cotton cannot fall to this level. Fibre2fashion spoke to Mr DK Nair, Secretary General of the Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI).

He said, “Cotton sowing has been delayed in certain states because of delayed monsoons. Though there has been some revival in the monsoon activities, the rains are below normal, as of now, but are likely to strengthen in the coming days”.

“Assuming that this happens, there is no serious worry for the cotton situation. If sufficient rains are received even now, the area under cotton can be sustained and productivity can also be maintained”, he explained.

“Thus, as of now, our expectation is that cotton crop for 2009-10 will be around 30 million bales, but rains in the coming couple of weeks will be crucial to maintaining production at this level”
