Cotton, a perennial herb, is widely grown in the United States, and is used to make fabrics and fabrics that are both durable and environmentally friendly.
But the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) recently warned that the herb can pose a threat to human health, with some researchers questioning its role in helping to reduce malaria.
The United States’ Cotton Department says it does not need to make any changes to its policy.
“The current policy of the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA) is not to consider the use of cotton as a feedstock for any agricultural crop,” the Cotton Department wrote in a statement to Bloomberg.
“Agricultural products derived from cotton are not, by definition, ‘seed’ or ‘seedless’ as is commonly stated.”
The USDA also said it did not intend to change its policy on cotton.
“Cotton is a staple of the American diet and is the primary crop for American livestock production,” the USDA said in a release.
The statement came on the same day that the USDA was forced to backtrack on its previous position on cotton’s role in fighting the malaria epidemic. “
Although the use and impact of cotton are well known, the United Sates government has taken no action to alter the USDA’s position on the use or impact of this crop on human health.”
The statement came on the same day that the USDA was forced to backtrack on its previous position on cotton’s role in fighting the malaria epidemic.
“This announcement will ensure that USDA remains focused on supporting the agricultural and food security of the entire nation and will ensure a sustainable future for cotton,” the statement read.
Cotton and its cousin the soybean, also known as corn, are often used in the production of biofuels.
The biofuel industry relies on cotton as its primary crop, but critics have questioned its health impact.
Cotton was once used as a crop for cattle and other livestock, but it was replaced by soybeans.
But critics say cotton is now a major feedstock and it could be the future of agriculture if we can’t stop the spread of the pandemic.
