During 2006-2010, the gross harvest of cotton fiber in the world decreased by 13%: from 70.9 million tons to 61.4 million tons. The main reason for the decrease in the total harvest of raw cotton in the world is the reduction of the acreage in the countries leading in cotton production. the fibers.
The reduction in acreage is due to competition from other crops. Thus, in the USA, the area under crops from 2006 to 2010 decreased by 39.4%: from 5.12 million hectares to 3.12 million hectares. In the US, corn is more attractive to growers than cotton. The same situation is observed in Turkey, where the acreage under raw cotton has decreased by 29%. In 2006-2010, the gross harvest of cotton in Greece decreased by 30.2%: from 1.04 million tons to 0.73 million tons. Greek farmers redirected their areas of cotton cultivation in favor of competing crops, mainly cereals. In a number of African countries, several low price seasons obtained by farmers have led to a decrease in cotton planting.
In 2011-2015, the gross harvest of raw cotton in the world will grow by an average of 4% per year. In 2015, the gross harvest of cotton will reach almost 74 million tons. The main factor contributing to the growth of the gross harvest of raw cotton is the growing yield. The average global yield in the projected years 2011-2015 will increase from 2.05 to 2.11 t / ha. Increased yields are associated with increased use of modern technologies, such as integrated insect control, efficient water use, crop rotation, and improved fertilizer use. The most visible of the new technologies is biotechnology, mainly leading to a reduction in the risks and costs of cotton cultivation. However, in some countries, biotechnology leads to higher yields. For example, in India, the yield in 2007 as a result of the expansion of crops of biotech cotton increased by 11%: from 1.26 t / ha to 1.40 t / ha.
