ABSTRACT
The article reports that Joe Nicosia, chief executive officer (CEO) of Allenberg Cotton Co., considers the cotton planting of 10.1 million acres in the U.S. to be not enough to offset a projected world production deficit. Nicosia states that a carryout of 1.4 million bales is indicated by a low yield estimate of 650 pounds. He adds that the absence of buffer stocks brings fear of shortage.
