The article reports on the market opportunity of the cotton farmers in the U.S. in 2009. Texas Agrilife Extension market specialist John Robinson notes that the 2009 Christmas season offers the cotton farmers the best market opportunity due to the fall harvest concerns, aside from the fact that the Hedge fund buyers can push the market without basis from the supply/demand side. He added that early pricing may be the best opportunity for the 2010 crop and expects cotton acreage to increase.
