ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the cotton growers in the U.S. On the national scale, cotton growers are being hammered by a slumping market and world trade issues. At the same time, Georgia producers are being told that certain textile mills want no part of their cotton and influential merchants are making a public airing of Georgia's quality problems. On the trade front, the United States, yielding to pressure from a coalition of developing nations agreed recently to make a 20 percent cut in some of the $19 billion in subsidies it pays to its farmers.
