The major cotton producing countries are USA, China, India, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Egypt, Argentina, Australia, Greece, Brazil and Turkey. These countries contribute about 85% to the global Cotton production. Cotton is the most important fiber crop of the world and it is also one of the most widely grown commercial crops in India. Our country ranks among the top three cotton producers in the world, with the cultivate area being 11mha, which is approximately one quarter of the world’s cotton growing area of 43 mha. India is the second largest producer of cotton in the world after China, collectively accounting for over 21% of the global cotton production.

In India, cotton crop is grown throughout the country. However, there are nine major cotton producing states, viz. Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. These states contribute about 90% to the National cotton production. Based on cotton cultivation, India is divided into three major zones viz. north zone (Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan), central zone (Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat) and south zone (Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu).
