World Perspective on Cotton

Lawrence H.Shaw


Rising consumption and limited gains in production are likely to lead to falling world stocks of cotton in 1994/95 and higher world prices. World economic growth will be the stimulus to increased consumption. Difficulties in achieving satisfactory yields will limit output gains in China, Pakistan and Uzbekistan. World trade should rise to 31% of consumption.
