The article presents an analysis of the level of supply and demand for cotton in the U.S. in 2011. According to Cliff White of Olam/Queensland Cotton Group, despite the struggle over acreage for cotton, corn, and soybeans, this phenomenon would not be enough to alter the tight supply and demand situation of corn in the country. He further stresses that the most important factor affecting the cotton market would be the weather problem in major-producing countries such as China and Australia.
