DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Market vs. Interventionist Approach: Cotton Production in India" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
India is the largest producer of cotton in the world, and is estimated to produce around 27 million 480lb bales of cotton, or more than a quarter (26%) of global cotton supply in 2016 (Index Mundi, 2016; National Cotton Council of America, 2016). Assuming a normal monsoon season, yields are expected to increase in 2016/2017 due to better crop, pest and weed management practice. Supply side factors in India are largely driven by relative costs of production for competing crops, water availability, timely monsoons, expected price levels, and government support in the form of minimum support prices and investments in R&D facilities (Sood, 2016).
The purpose of this analysis is to determine whether a market-oriented or interventionist approach would boost the productivity of the cotton industry in India. It will look at the periods between 1976/77 and 2015/16, with data accumulated from the World Bank (2016) and United States Department of Agriculture (2016). The following analysis will look for any relationships between cotton production and mill use, exports, domestic credit to the private sector, government spending, currency valuation to one US dollar, and foreign direct investments. The USDA records cotton production, exports and mill consumption between August and July.
Due to this, domestic credit to the private sector, government spending, and foreign direct investments all of which are obtained from the World Bank and are in USD will be estimated by a weighted average of five months of the previous year and seven months of the current year in question.
