ABSTRACT
This article reports that a new use of the term early harvest by a European Union official could have U.S. producers' blood boiling when word of the EU trade commissioner's comments begins to circulate through the Cotton Belt. Peter Mandelson said in a speech to West African cotton producers in Mali that collapsing prices today threaten the future of their industry tomorrow. Mandelson called for an early harvest of the U.S. cotton program in the current Doha Round of the World Trade Organization negotiations. This would be despite an agreement by WTO members last year to not single out cotton for special treatment in the Round, which is expected to be concluded in 2006.
