the largest cotton acreage in the world at 12 Million hectares, steady
improvement in farming practices and one of the fastest growing yields,
India is the world's second largest producer of cotton and may well
become the largest by 2015. Alongside the ever increasing domestic
consumption by India's vast and vibrant textile industry, the country
has also managed a consistent exportable surplus of cotton with rising
yield per hectare.
cotton encompasses all the four major varieties of cotton known
globally along with over 200 varieties and hybrids making it the widest
possible range in the world. India produces extra long staple, long
staple, medium and short staple varieties that can be spun in a wide
range from 6 to 120 counts presenting buyers with a bouquet of options
to meet the diverse end uses.
environment consciousness among consumers and increased preference by
brands, labels and retailers for the use of eco-friendly textiles in
clothing and home textiles have boosted the demand for organic cotton.
As a 'GREEN' alternative, organic cotton promises a safer and healthier
world for present and future generations.
a spectacular increase in production in the last two years, India is
the world's largest producer of organic cotton and has an annual
production of over 75,000 tons, undoubtedly encouraged by the increased
use of organic fibre in everything from personal care items (sanitary
products, make-up removal pads, cotton puffs and ear swabs), to home
furnishings (towels, bathrobes, sheets, blankets, bedding), children's
products (toys, diapers), all kinds of apparel (including work wear,
sportswear and other uses), and even stationery and note cards.
