Organic agriculture is gaining ground rapidly and organic cotton provides important environmental, economic and social benefits compared with conventioanl cotton production. Commercial organic cotton is a new area of activity -- barely ten years old -- and research and analysis are still at an early stage. This book provides the first overview of organic cotton production, processing and consumption for everyone involved with cotton. The book is organized according to the stages in the 'cotton chain', from farmer to consumer, and covers each topic authoritatively with contributions from more than 50 people in 20 countries.
