Hello everyone, I am working for the International Trade Centre (ITC). I would like to propose the addition of an external link that could lead directly to the specific product trade data held by ITC. I have seen that most of the actual links to trade database are outdated. Theefore, I would like you to consider this link under the WP:ELYES #3 prescriptions. Moreover, the reliability and the pertinence of this link can be supported by the following facts: 1) ITC is part of the United Nations 2) No registration is required 3) Trade data (imports/exports) are regularly updated 4) The link gives direct access to the trade database referring to the specific product 5) The addition of a link to reliable data could provide an appropriate contribution to section of the article related to international trade. Thank you for your attention.Divoc (talk) 17:42, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
This section is poorly written. The last sentence refers to " 225,000 bales that year", however the last year mentioned is 1911, and the reference applies to the 1990's. The preceding sentence is likely incorrectly written as well. Also, the "Cultivation" section apparently applies to all cotton, not just Tangüis cotton.
I'm going to remove the Tangüis cotton section, someone with knowledge of this should correct it and reinstate it. It might belong as a separate page with a link. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ggpauly (talk • contribs) 19:35, 18 September 2012 (UTC)
even this page does not say how many years cottons live. NOR does it say how the seeds get from the plant to self-seed the next year. Perhaps some one who knows can add this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 12:37, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

There's really not anything about the water footprint of cotton. Apparently, according to WWF, it takes between 7000 - 29 000 litres of water to produce 1kg of cotton. This information really should be added. Agree, disagree?
typo: "cambric" was written where "chambray" was intended, possibly because chambray is discussed only on the cambric page. Both fabrics include shirtings, but cambric is suitable for shirts to be worn with evening dress and chambray is suitable for shirts to be worn with pick and shovel. The reference to "blue collar" makes it clear that the latter is meant.
