New Member
The Cotton industry comfortably maintains global competitiveness due to the growing use of genetically modified cotton seeds, high production yields, burgeoning world demand and generous support payments from the Government. High domestic prices and increased exports are expected to further stimulate revenue growth. A potential new market for this industry may be biofuels produced from cottonseed oil. The popularity of cotton products is not expected to wane with consumption growing at faster rates than demand for manmade fibers. ( Cotton Farming in the US - Business Market Reports )
