The Economic Research Service (ERS) conducts a variety of
ongoing market outlook activities on the cotton industry. Details
on major changes and events in the U.S. and world cotton markets
are published 9 months of the year in ERS's
Cotton and Wool Outlook report. (Previously
published outlook reports are also available.) The Cotton and Wool Yearbook recaps the previous
ERS--along with USDA's World Agricultural Outlook Board,
Agricultural Marketing Service, Farm Service Agency, and Foreign
Agricultural Service--develops USDA's monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates
(WASDE) report. The WASDE provides the latest domestic and global
cotton supply and use outlook.
Long-term supply and use projections for cotton are available
through the USDA Agricultural
Baseline Projections briefing room.
