Quality of Lint Obtained in Cleaning Cottonseed to Facilitate Seed Coating Process

J. W. Laird and T. C. Wedegaertner


Fiber test data indicates that tag cotton removed to facilitate coating cottonseed to create EASIflotm cottonseed is comparable in many respects to ordinary lint but with some distinct differences. It has good upper end length properties but more short fiber. It has good fiber strength and very high fiber elongation properties. It is somewhat coarse with very high maturity. The volume of production projected for the coated cottonseed development will make thousands of bales of this new fiber available.
