Cotton is a bulk staple fiber produced from the cotton plant. It serves as the primary raw material for textiles all over the globe. It is grown in tropical and subtropical regions, within latitudes that provide a long frost-free growing period of 150 or more days per year.
Once harvested, cotton fiber is separated from its seed and is traded in bales of 75-220kg each. Crushed cotton seed produces oil primarily used for cooking and is used for animal feed.
