2013 Cotton Report Published
16 July 2014
In a year where heat and flooding impacted profitability, Australian cotton growers won’t be surprised that analysis of the 2013 crop reveals results well below those achieved in 2012.
The recently published Australian Cotton Comparative Analysis (ACCA) report for 2013 shows the ‘average grower’ attained a value per bale of $427 compared to $486 the previous year. The result for the ‘top 20%’ of growers was a similarly disappointing $445 per bale, a decrease of $33 from the 2012 result.
