    Closing commodity reports from the Arkansas Farm Bureau Commodity Staff.

    Cotton Comment
    Cotton was mostly lower as a big adjustment in beginning stocks for India pushed world ending stocks above 66 million bales. China’s import needs were raised 2 million bales, which was reflected in a 400,000 bale increase in projected U.S. exports. However, a 500,000 bale decline in U.S. ending stocks wasn’t enough to prop up the market. December ended just below recent support and could be headed to the contract low of 83.25 cents.
