Commodity profile - Cotton Seed oil
Botanical Name
General characterstics
Cottonseed oil is a vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of the cotton plant after the cotton lint has been removed. It must be refined to remove gossypol, a naturally occurring toxin, which protects the cotton plant from insect damage.
Unrefined cottonseed oil is therefore sometimes used as a pesticide. In its natural unhydrogenated state, cottonseed oil, like all vegetable oils, has no cholesterol.

Market moving factor
1. The cotton crop is highly volatile and climate sensitive. So cotton production varies according to climatic conditions and crop situation. Cotton crop follows the crop cycle and prices starts firming up from April, while they ease only in September on new crop arrival in the market.
2. A Minimum Support Price is set by the Government of India to support cotton prices. Several government agencies like Cotton Corporation of India and Maharashtra State Co-operative Cotton Growers' Marketing Federation procures cotton at this price. While the price trend is initially set by the MSP, big industry cartels later determine price direction.
3. Imports and exports play a significant role in determining price
