In the process of restricted buying by mills and spinners, cotton rates were firm at the cotton market on Friday, as per dealers. The official spot rate remained unchanged at Rs 6300. In Sindh, seed cotton prices were unmoved at Rs 2800-3350 while in Punjab, phutti rates held the overnight levels at Rs 2800 and Rs 3550, as per 40 kg.

According to cotton analyst, Naseem Usman, rates of cotton were up amid tight supply of best quality. Provincial Agriculture Minister of Punjab, Dr Farrukh Javed talking to Naseem Usman said that to achieve better production, the cotton growers should refrain from early sowing, the farmers would have to wait for April 15 for new sowing.

Other analysts said that phutti arrivals came down and variety is not so good, so some needy mills and spinners entered the trading ring to meet their demand.

The positive development is that after a long gap of time, the yarn is in demand, which may bring some relief for the traders, other experts said.

According to private sector estimate, country may achieve 10.54 million bales of cotton, which is not enough for total consumption. They also observed that the trading activity revived due to Heimtextil fair, the biggest trade exhibition of textile products.
