Most farmers will chose to produce cotton until the prices will lower until equilibrium where profits=minimum, then it is time to move over to other produce, that gives the next better pricing and returns, this will go on forever as market consolidates, the trick is planning when to enter and get out of the markets to get maximum returns.

Just by sticking to the old produce is definitely a no-brainer which is the cause of your poverty. By changing to a high yield high return produce you will definitely get your funding, so a bank loan is no issue then, that is the only way to move up the poverty cycle.
