India Ousts China As Top Cotton Producer; Becomes World’s Largest Producer

By       -   November 28th, 2015

India is now the world’s No. 1 cotton grower, ousting China from the top spot for the first time in over 30 years.


The switch by the two top growers had been come after Chinese farmers cut plantings amid uncertainty over the state support program and a planting frenzy in India since August after a late monsoon favored growing conditions.


This is the beginning of the transition where China will use its stocks, and in four or five years, they may become a big net importer again.
