OCTOBER 08, 2017 - Cotton trading in Adilabad will commence on October 9, provided there is no rainfall that day. The decision on opening of markets was taken at a meeting of traders, farmers, officials and others chaired by Forest Minister Jogu Ramanna. The issue of moisture content of cotton was discussed at length. Moisture content in cotton has been an irritant in the trade since the Cotton Corporation of India and private traders started implementing the rule. Ideally, the CCI purchases cotton which has a moisture per cent ranging between 8 and 12 and rejects the produce which crosses the upper limits. Mr. Ramanna urged the CCI and traders to relax the trend and purchase cotton which has moisture content up to 16 per cent.
