Location: Cotton Ginning Research
Project Number: 6235-41000-008-37
Start Date: Jul 01, 2010
End Date: Jun 30, 2013
All projects will be conducted by evaluating the following areas: 1) varietal interactions with mechanical processing both in the gin and the textile mill on fiber, yarn and fabric quality, and process efficiency, 2) integrate genetic and genomic tools in the breeding process to incorporate useful genes for ginnability and textile quality, and 3) process and evaluate in the gin and textile mill new upland cotton strains in reference to areas 1 and 2 in order to aid in cotton breeder variety selection and development.
