World Cotton Calendar Unveiled

Date Posted: 21 Nov, 2014

During its 73rd Plenary Meeting, held in Thessaloniki, Greece, the ICAC unveiled the World Cotton Calendar, which is available at http://worldcottoncalendar.icac.org. 

The source of the information that comprises the World Cotton Calendar is a huge database maintained by the ICAC, containing data on all aspects of cotton production field operations, including ginning and picking, from 37 countries. The Calendar has information on varieties planted and area under each variety, early and mid season insects, narrow and broad leaf weeds, quantity of fertilizer applied and diseases. More importantly, the Calendar also includes up to five important cotton related activities per month. Access to the information is free and the Calendar will be updated on regular basis.

To access the data once you are on the page, zoom in on a country and then on a region (if cotton is produced in more than one region). Click on the blue dot until a clickable list of data titles appears. The blue dot shows that the data for a particular country/region is available and can be instantly accessed. Additional information is available in the publication Cotton Production Practices – November 2014, which can be ordered from the ICAC at publications@icac.org.
