Cotton is one of the most important fiber and cash crop of India and plays an important role in the industrial and agricultural economy of the country. In the present paper an attempt has been made to study the trends in area under cotton and production of cotton in Haryana. The area under cotton in state of Haryana has decreased over the time period from 1966 to 2017. There is not any uniform or continuous pattern regarding cotton cultivation in Haryana. The wide disparity of temperature, rainfall and soil features found in Haryana permits growing of different types of crops. They include cotton, rice and bajara crop in Kharif season and wheat, pulses and oilseeds etc in Rabi season. In order to examine the trend in area and production of cotton in the state, data have been computed for the period 1966-67 to 2016-17. Haryana has recorded almost many fold increase in the area under cotton and production as per the data available.
