Changing Cotton Quality Demands in Industry

C.K. Bragg and C.L. Simpson


The six quality factors currently measured on HVI systems and to be integrated into the cotton marketing system in 1991 were reviewed. These basic quality measurements have become the norm for fiber property control to assure consistent manufacturing efficiency. However, it was pointed out that industry is now focusing on the need for additional fiber property measurements to eliminate fabric defects. These properties include seed-coat fragments, fineness/maturity, and short fiber content. Additional fiber property measurements are needed to ensure high production efficiency and defect free fabrics for improved competition for world markets.
