WORLD COTTON PROSPECTS 
 
     More rain is needed for developing cotton in south Texas especially in the 
lower Rio Grande Valley. Rain is needed to recharge soil moisture in west Texas 
prior to planting. 
    The harvest of cotton in Pakistan and northwest India is reported complete 
at this time. Mostly favorable conditions for the harvest of cotton elsewhere 
in India at this time. 
   A drier, warmer trend in cotton areas of eastern Australia will favor the 
maturing crop and harvesting. 
   Mostly favorable conditions at this time for field work in preparation for 
planting cotton in the southern portion of former Asian Russia...primary cotton 
areas are in Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan. 
   Cotton areas of west China were mainly dry and warm during the first week of 
April. This should favor field work in preparation for planting this mostly 
irrigated crop. The east China cotton belt saw rain and above normal 
temperatures through southern areas, drier and cooler through northern areas. 
This portion of China's crop relies more on seasonal rains during the summer 
growing season.
