Higher cotton output likely

COIMBATORE: It is expected that the total cotton production in 2004-05 will be higher than last year by about 8 per cent. Small arrivals have already started in a few centres in Gujarat, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.

Speaking at the annual general meeting of the South India Cotton Association (SICA) here recently, its president, R. Soundara Raj, said the cotton crop for 2004-05 had been progressing well and the climatic factors had been favourable. He said the association was exploring possibilities of upgrading the testing facilities at its laboratory soon. With regard to the proposal of "bank assisted cotton payment system", he said the association was continuing its discussions with Crisil "to prepare a suitable paper to be submitted to the Government." — Our Staff Reporter
