USDA projects 8% rise in 2016/17 global cotton output

Dec '16
Driven by rebound in the average yield, which has more than offset lower acreage, the December report of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has estimated 2016/17 global cotton production at 104.2 million bales, an expansion of 8 per cent over the previous season. Improved weather conditions, also led to the growth in output of the global cotton crop.

The global yield in 2016/17 is expected at 775 kg per hectare, which is above the five year average. India’s 2016/17 crop is forecast at 27.0 million bales, up 2 per cent from 2015/16, despite a 12 per cent decline in acreage as farmers seek alternative crops.

However, the Chinese 2016/17 cotton production is anticipated to drop for the fourth consecutive season to 21.0 million bales, 1 million bales below 2015/16 and the smallest crop since 2000/01.

In the same season, Pakistan’s cotton crop is estimated at around 8.3 million bales, a massive expansion of 18 per cent over the 2015/16 cotton crop. (AR)
