Dec. 2 (Bloomberg) -- South Africa’s cotton harvest this year is likely to be the smallest in six decades, Cotton South Africa said.

The country will probably produce 42,440 bales of cotton lint, 6 percent less than last month’s projection, the Pretoria-based industry group said today in an e-mailed statement giving its final estimate.

Cotton South Africa represents growers and processors of the fiber as well as textile makers.
