WORLD COTTON PROSPECTS 
 
   Cotton planting is increasing in the Delta states. 
   No significant concerns for the harvest of cotton in northwest India at this 
time. 
   Drier weather through key growing areas of eastern Australia during this 
week will help improve conditions for the maturing crop, open boll cotton and 
harvesting, following the heavy rain at the end of March. Warmer temperatures 
would be more favorable. 
   Increasing shower activity in Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan (former Soviet 
Union) will improve soil moisture and irrigation and favor early planting of 
cotton. 
   Mostly favorable conditions for planting and early development for cotton in 
west China. The eastern growing belt may see some delay to planting as episodes 
of rain move across.
