Reports from the McIntyre- Goondiwindi cotton-growing region indicated around 5,000 acres may have been lost, FCStone Australia Pty said in an e-mailed report today after recent flooding. Cotton areas may get 5 millimeters to 50 millimeters of rain over the next four to eight days, while reports of mite infestations were causing yield concerns, the report said.

Total Australian planting this season was estimated at about 665,000 hectares (1.6 million acres), Cotton Australia said last month.
