19% dip in 2013 US cotton crop
According to USDA's first projection
for the 2013 crop, U.S. cotton production is forecast at 14.0 million
bales, 19 percent below the final 2012 crop estimate. Based on the
Prospective Plantings report, 2013 cotton area is expected to be
10.0 million acres-also down 19 percent from 2012 and the lowest
in four seasons.
The lower planted area is the result
of higher competing crop prices relative to cotton. While drought
conditions continue across much of the cotton-growing area of Texas,
wet conditions have been prevalent in the Delta States-these conditions
have led to delays in 2013 crop planting.
As of May 12th, only 23 percent
of the U.S. cotton area had been planted, compared with 46 percent
in 2012 and a 5-year average of 38 percent. Texas has planted only
20 percent of its crop, comparedwith an average of 31 percent. For
the Delta States, plantings have ranged from 3-29 percent complete,
compared with the 5-year average of 21-81 percent.
Weather conditions during the next
month and throughout the growing season will affect acreage, and
more importantly, cotton production. The initial 2013 abandonment
is based on the 2010-12 crop average abandonment, weighted by region;
the Southwest abandonment is projected at 25 percent, reflecting
the current drought conditions.>>read more
