The carry-over stock at the end of the 2018-19 season is estimated by the CAI at 15.25 lakh bales.
During October, record breaking cotton arrivals are witnessed due to the fact that there were no rains during the last 60 to 70 days in the entire cotton belt of India. Due to the dry and hot weather, kapas bolls opened in early stages this year. Moreover, in the northern region, kapas was sold at 4500 per quintal same time last year whereas this year farmers are getting substantially higher price of about 5300 per quintal. Due to this, arrivals are considerably higher in October this year.
