Interpretive Summary: An extensive literature search has revealed that no papers have been published regarding selectivity calculation of the AFIS seed coat neps (SCN) determination over interfering material in cotton. A prerequisite to selectivity measurements is to identify suitable fiber medium(s) that give baseline SCN response. These mediums are needed to add or spike with potentially interfering materials that may be classified incorrectly by the AFIS as SCN. Several suitable mediums have been found and will be presented
