NCMMS: cotton area to increase in 2019
2018-12-20

Early indications shows that cotton area will increase slightly in 2019. The latest survey by NCMMS reveals that prospective cotton planting totals 49.309 mil mu in 2019, up 308,000 mu or 0.6% from 2018. 

 

Acreage will decline in east China (-3.8%) and north China (-8.2%), but tends to increase 3.5% in the northwest. Xinjiang cotton area is projected to rise 3.3% to 35.728 mil mu in 2019. 

 

The increase in Xinjiang cotton area is due to firm support frorm target price subsidy, lower input cost after PCC farm reform and improved quality that offset a drop in seed cotton price.
