2007 Cotton Planting Intentions

With cotton prices relatively similar to last year but corn prices and soybean prices up, Dr. Gary Adams, Vice-President of Economics and Policy Analysis for the National Cotton Council, says expectations are for cotton acres to shift to grains.

Adams says the projection for Upland cotton acreage is about twelve point eight million acres.

Extra-Long Staple or ELS cotton is estimated to have an increase to three hundred and sixty thousand acres for 2007 according to Adams.
