Organic cotton shows dramatic fall

Written by John Mowbray

Organic cotton IndiaTEXAS – A sharp decline in the production of organic cotton in India and the rise of ‘sustainable cotton’ is being blamed for a massive 35 per cent fall in the global production of organic cotton from 241,697 metric tonnes (mt) in 2010/11 to 151,079 mt this year. This decline, together with droughts last year in the USA, is also expected to lower organic cotton production by 5 per cent next year, according to a new report from Textile Exchange.
