First time, International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC) has compiled its three reports into one massive resource 'The 2020 Cotton Data Book'. For last 30 years, ICAC has been publishing three triennial reports: 'Cotton Production Practices', 'Cost of Production of Raw Cotton' and 'Structure of Cotton Research, Input Supply & Transfer of Technology'. 
 
The 224-page digital book called, 'The 2020 Cotton Data Book' provides detailed data on the cotton industries of the top 38 countries and features more than 40 charts, tables and graphs to help illustrate the information.
 
Given the industry's urgent need for up-to-date cotton data and statistics, the ICAC decided not only to combine the reports but to publish the information every year rather than once every three years. The Cotton Data Book will be released annually during the ICAC plenary meeting.
 
"In this Internet age of rapid information sourcing, there is a great hunger for numbers - and data reports get outdated pretty fast," Dr Keshav Kranthi, head of the ICAC's technical information section and primary author of the publication, said. "This is the main reason why the ICAC decided to merge all three triennial reports into one annual report."
 
The new digital publication will not only provide more timely information but also offer significant cost savings. 
 
Formed in 1939, the ICAC is an association of cotton producing, consuming and trading countries. It acts as a catalyst for change by helping member countries maintain a healthy world cotton economy; provides transparency to the world cotton market by serving as a clearinghouse for technical information on cotton production; and serves as a forum for discussing cotton issues of international significance.
