Since spring, most cotton regions nationwide are conductive for cotton sowing, except North of Yellow River with unsatisfactory soil moisture, and some areas in Yangtze regions had too much rain. In early April, cotton sowing starts in Xinjiang, South of Yellow River and North of Yangtze region, and the rest is preparing for the planting.

Before Tomb-sweeping Day (5th April), domestic lint selling price fell again, due to the forthcoming target price announcement and increased cotton yarn import. Last week, (30th March-3th April), on 3th April, CC Index (3128B) settled at 13,452 Yuan/ton, 21 Yuan less over the week.
