A region in Maharashtra that always faces crisis due to rains, Vidarbha, is expected to give a record yield this time. Although the harvest may not get good prices as cotton rates are expected to stay at Rs. 3,700 per quintal as compared to the minimum support price (MSP) of Rs. 4,050 per quintal, because of low demand from China, which is a major importer. The higher yield will only provide a saving grace, hopefully. If the rainfall remains moderate throughout September and October, the yield is expected to be highest in the last five years.

Although the cotton yield is expected to go up to six quintals per acre, the low prices in the open market may fall below the MSP.
