The article reports that the production of cotton in the U.S. is estimated to be 1 percent higher in May 2006 than in April 2006. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) increased domestic mill use and exports of cotton in its April 10 world supply and demand estimates. The world production of cotton in the year 2005 also increased. Soybean production was lessened by the USDA due to lesser production for Brazil. Rice production in the U.S. has increased in comparison to last month, but decreased in comparison to the year 2004-05.
