Naseem Usman, chairman of the Karachi Cotton Brokers Association (KCBA), said the market prices remained high amid expectations of shortfall in crop and deterioration of the quality of crop in fields. A total of 20 transactions of around 21,000 bales were recorded at a price of Rs6,200 to Rs6,985/maund. Notable deals were recorded from Ghotki, Daharki, Rohri, Saleh Pat, Khairpur, Mirpur Mathelo, Rahimyar Khan, Sadiqabad, Mianwali, Haroonabad and Vehari.
