This is extremely welcome news, but I would submit that the best place for
cotton farming is nowhere until the industry learns to operate without the
massive load of harmful crop spraying which it undertakes.

Indian hemp is a far better alternative to cotton and also offers an
alternative source of raw material for paper products in place of eucalypt
