Effect of Moisture on Moduled Seed Cotton

Robert Curley, Bruce Roberts, Tom Kerby, Clay Brooks and Jerry Knutson


The deterioration of cotton in stored modules is caused primarily by excessive moisture combined with temperatures that support biological activity. This paper discusses the results of a three-year study in the San Joaquin Valley which evaluated the effect of various moisture levels and storage periods on the quality of lint and seed.
