California cotton producers planting less due to COVID-19

California cotton producers plant less due to COVID-19 related shutdowns and other issues.

The California Farm Bureau Federation presents this video highlighting why Gino Pedretti III is decreasing his acres.

“We’re hoping with the trade war, last year with China, and with COVID going on right now, that the cotton market will go up by the time we harvest the crop...due to COVID and the mills being shut down and oversees trade being harder right now... and just with the backlog of everything because of the pandemic going on, cotton price is not looking very appealing right now,” he said.
