After experiencing the extreme weather in early May and late May, the temperature in Xinjiang started to recover quickly from Jun, and cotton crops developed well. The planting progress in Kuqa, where the crops have been damaged, has recovered soon, but in Korla, the planting progress remains slow obviously. In mid-Jul, the temperature was high again in Xinjiang, arousing the concerns over the cotton production again. Nevertheless, the temperature reduced slightly recently. Pay attention to the weather condition later.
For the growing progress, Kashgar, Bachu, and Aksu were progressing well and relatively fast, while the Korla in South Xinjiang has the slowest growth progress. This region is also one of the most severely affected areas in South Xinjiang this year. Additionally, in mid-July, there was a noticeable slowdown in the planting progress in the Wusu area, which might be related to the high temperatures in North Xinjiang.
