The article focuses on the economic outlook of the cotton market as revealed at the Beltwide Cotton Conference held in Atlanta, Georgia. It has been projected that there will be more cotton produced and consumed in the world in 2011-2012 as agreed by Terry Barr, the economist of CoBank, and John Robinson, the economist of Texas A&M. However, the lack of cotton farming equipment and other infrastructure may prevent the boost of the cotton industry in 2011.
