Dec '16
In its December report, the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has projected US cotton production for 2016 at 16.5 million bales, an increase of 2 per cent above the 2015 cotton crop. However, the December report has kept unchanged the planted and harvested area, estimated respectively at around 10.2 million acres and 9.7 million acres in the current year.

According to USDA, the abandonment rate of 5 per cent forecast for this season is the lowest since the 2010 cotton crop.

The 2016 US cotton yield is estimated at 821 pounds per harvested acre, 7 per cent above the previous season, driven by improved conditions, particularly in the Southwest regions.

2016 upland cotton production is projected at 16.0 million bales, a massive jump as against around 12.5 million bales in 2015, while the extra long staple (ELS) crop is forecast at 562,000 bales, which is also considerably above the 2015 ELS cotton crop. (AR)
