This article reports that according to an Alabama cotton merchant, low prices and a good range of quality should help move U.S. cotton in the export market, despite large crop and more competition from India and Pakistan. According to Bobby Weil, chairman and CEO of Weil Brothers Cotton, Montgomery, Alabama, most people were surprised at the estimated size of the U.S. cotton crop in 2004. He further adds that the U.S. cotton has some competition it hasn't had in the last few years, but the U.S. crop will offer the world a wide range of quality in 2004.
