Record Yields for the 2014-15 Australian Cotton Season
September 17, 2015
Excellent growing conditions in many Australian cotton growing valleys has led to record yields this season. Cotton Australia CEO, Adam Kay, says a national harvest of 2.2 million bales is expected for the 2014-15 season.
“A number of growers are reporting record yields as high as 15-16 bales per hectare on the back of magnificent growing conditions in many cotton growing valleys,” Mr Kay says.
“We expect this season’s average Australian yield to be well above of the 2013-14 average of 9.95 bales per hectare, already the highest cotton yields in the world,” he said.
