Importance of accurate price information for the cotton industry

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

The importance of accurate price information is discussed in relation to the cotton industry. It is noted that cotton lint is a bundle of attributes, not homogeneous product. Cotton quality can be measured using the available technology. Information on the price structure must be estimated and disseminated. Inaccurate information will lead to inefficient production, ginning, processing and marketing.
