Coverage for property damage by a covered peril to insured cotton during the time period from its weighing in at the gin until its delivery to the buyer. Written either on a specified peril basis or on an all risks basis. The purpose of cotton insurance is much the same as the purchase of insurance by a merchant to protect business inventory prior to its sale, since in many instances the primary asset is the inventory.
