Cotton futures trade higher on rising demand

Cotton futures traded higher on MCX due to rising domestic as well as export demand at the spot market. Besides, expectation of shrinkage of cotton acreage by at least 10-15 lakh ha in coming kharif season in the country due to pest attack also fuelled the uptrend.
