    The present study “Statistical analysis on arrivals and prices of cotton in selected markets of Andhra Pradesh” was mainly aimed at to study the secular trend, seasonal, cyclic fluctuations, association and to forecast the arrivals and prices of cotton in the selected markets of Andhra Pradesh. Five markets were selected for the study viz., Adoni, Jammikunta, Karimnagar, Khammam and Warangal based on maximum quantity of arrivals. The secondary data on monthly total arrivals (Qtls) and modal prices (Rs/Qtls) were collected for the period from April 2000-01 to March 2013-14 (14years) for the selected markets. The method of least squares, twelve months ratio to centered moving average, correlation analysis and ARIMA model were used. xiv The results revealed that in the long run all the selected markets showed an increasing trend except in Warangal market with regard to cotton arrivals whereas the trend in prices of cotton were almost similar (increasing) in selected markets. In the case of seasonal indices of arrivals and prices of cotton in Adoni market revealed that the highest arrivals was noticed in month of January and the lowest arrivals was noticed in the month of July. The highest price was noticed in the month of September and the lowest price was noticed in the month of December. In Jammikunta market, the highest arrivals in month of November and lowest in the month of September while highest prices was observed in the month of July and lowest prices in October.
