Even as Cotton Corporation of India (CCI) has projected an ambitious procurement target of 100 lakh bales in the just-commenced cotton season (Oct 2018-Sep 2019), it is failing to attract sellers in Punjab due to strict quality norms and farmers being wary of bypassing the agents/adathiyas.

As per government’s sowing report, cotton has been sown in 122.38 lakh ha, lower than 124.29 lakh ha sown last year till date but higher than normal kharif area of 119.75 lakh ha on date. Scanty rainfall in Gujarat & an attack of pink bollworms In Maharashtra & Telangana are expected to squeeze the cotton crop yields.

As a result, the Cotton Association of India (CAI) has pegged cotton production in 2018-19 to fall 4.7% from the previous season’s 365 lakh bales to 348 lakh bales. Cotton arrivals in the Southern part of India including Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka were 3,000 bales and 2,000 bales, respectively, against 5,000 bales and 4,000 bales while in Telangana the arrivals were 5,000 bales against 7,000 bales on the previous day.

Meanwhile, fibre arrivals in Upper Rajasthan were 9,000 bales compared to 8,000 bales a day before while in Lower Rajasthan were unchanged at 8,000 bales.  Cotton arrivals in Maharashtra were 6,000 bales compared to 7,000 bales while arrivals in Gujarat were 15,000 bales compared to 19,000 bales on the previous day.
