Abstract

Abstract

The current procedure of using concentrated sulfuric acid to prepare numerous small samples of cotton seed for planting is tedious and is hazardous to both the seed and the technician. A dilute sulfuric acid process was adapted to delint .small samples of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) seed. Three to four hundred samples per day, each ca. 80 g of fuzzy seed, can be delinted using this process. More than 6,000 small samples were delinted and planted in 1976; germination was not affected.
