The surge in prices traders say can be attributed to the low production due to heavy unseasonal rains in parts of the country. The high demand for the produce in the international market has also triggered the hike in the prices.

December-January marks the peak of cotton marketing season and supply is almost half as compared to normal years as per traders. Jamnagar APMC records arrivals of around 2,000 quintals daily of cotton but as per reports is hardly getting around 1,000 quintals these days.
