ABSTRACT
The article discusses the problem of decreasing cotton production in Uzbekistan, the fifth largest producer of cotton in the world. It is observed that the paucity of irrigational water in the country is the basic reason for decreasing production of cotton. Water resource of the Aral Sea can no longer be employed because of constant depletion in water level. It is discussed that the European countries are still able to get cotton from Uzbekistan because of low export prices.
