Commercial organic cotton production is a new area of activity, and research and analysis is still at an early stage, but what written material exists is presented here with material commissioned specifically for this book. It is organized according to the stages in the 'cotton chain', from farmer to consumer, and covers each topic authoritatively with contributions from over 50 people in 20 countries. Illustrative case study material is particularly important and most of the current organic cotton projects worldwide are discussed. Policy makers, journalists, farmers' organizations, environmentalists, agromists, those involved in commerce and industry, and informed consumers will find much here of interest.
