There will be no shortage of cotton during the ongoing marketing season 2018-19 (that ends on September 30) despite an all-time low yield, the Confederation of Indian Textile Industry (CITI) has said. Based on the actual data collected from cotton growing areas, CITI has revised cotton crop estimate for the current season to 343 lakh bales of 170 kg each. “Drought in many cotton growing regions of Gujarat, a few regions of Maharashtra and a few areas in other cotton growing States has affected cotton yield,” CITI Chairman Sanjay K Jain said.
