The Economic Research Service (ERS) conducts a variety of ongoing market outlook activities on the cotton industry. Details on major changes and events in the U.S. and world cotton markets are published 9 months of the year in ERS's Cotton and Wool Outlook report. (Previously published outlook reports are also available.) The Cotton and Wool Yearbook recaps the previous cotton season.
ERS--along with USDA's World Agricultural Outlook Board, Agricultural Marketing Service, Farm Service Agency, and Foreign Agricultural Service--develops USDA's monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report. The WASDE provides the latest domestic and global cotton supply and use outlook.
Long-term supply and use projections for cotton are available through the USDA Agricultural Baseline Projections briefing room.
