The core objective of the study is to exam the growth performance and its sources of cotton vis-a-vis minimum support price over the past 20 years, using secondary data. A linear regression model, simple tabular analysis, and arithmetic measures such as averages, percentages, and other statistical methods were used. Growth performance was analysed for the country as a whole (national level), and for the state of Telangana (state level). Similar analysis was carried out for a leading cotton producing district, Adilabad of Telangana to examine growth performance at district level in relation to national/state level trends. At national level, yield improvement has contributed to the extent of two-thirds of production growth over the past two decades. Results however indicate the share of area expansion to production growth of cotton in Telangana state as well as in Adilabad of the state was about three-fourths, and rest of one-fourth was due to yield improvement during the period 2001-2019. It was observed that a positive effect of new technological innovations that was made available to the farmers after 2001, especially Bt cotton hybrids on area growth in cotton. The Minimum Support Price of cotton has also become an attractive factor for expansion of cotton area. Farmers in Telangana have received higher market price of cotton produce, than MSP in 13 years between 2001 and 2019. Findings suggest that a remunerative MSP with higher rate of increase than present MSP growth rate, and an assured procurement by CCI are key policy options for sustaining farmers; profitability of cotton.
