The World’s Cotton Supply Keeps Shrinking, Hit by Drought, Heat


Bom Futuro group, one of Brazil’s largest cotton producers accounting for about 10% of the nation’s planted area, has seen yields fall 27% compared with the previous season. Julio Cezar Busato, a grower in Sao Desiderio, Bahia state, has suffered from a similar decline. Dryness is reducing the number of cotton bolls, making them lighter across all of the country’s main growing regions, he said.
