Cotton acreage down 10%: Textile commissioner

BS Reporter  |  Mumbai 

India's cotton acreage is down by about 10 to15 per cent compared to last year due to delay in monsoon, said A B Joshi, textile commissioner. Last year the area under cotton stood at 12.2 million hectare, and this year is estimated to be lower than the previous year's levels. So far sowing in Maharashtra and Rajasthan is affected due to the delay in rainfall.
