Irregularities in Fiber Properties of Cotton in Commercial Mill Mixes1
- C. B. Landstreet and
- D. M. Simpson2
Unmixed raw stock from which 3 commercial mixes were obtained showed the following range in variability of mean fiber properties: 9 to 20% in UHM, 16 to 35% in fineness, and 19 to 24% in fiber strength. Samples from finisher drawing sliver had maximum range of only 5, 5, and 6% for UHM, fineness, and strength. More concern for mean fiber values and less for fiber irregularities is suggested in cotton breeding.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
