Valuation of Cotton Characteristics by U.S. Textile Manufacturers

Changping Chen, Don Ethridge


This study analyzed the prices paid by textile mill manufacturers for cotton quality attributes across production regions for the period 1992-1995. Results suggest that textile manufacturers paid different fiber attribute premiums/ discounts across production regions. All fiber premiums and discounts were significantly different between the West and South Central region. Staple premiums/discounts were different between the West and South. Micronaire discounts differed across all three regions. Textile manufacturers paid strength premiums only for Western cotton.
