Technological Studies on the Spinning Performance of Cultivated Cotton Species and Varieties



Babar Shahbaz , Sh. Muhammad Nawaz and Mujahid Ahmad
 
ABSTRACT

Eight varieties of cotton from all cultivated species viz. Gossypium barbadense, Gossypium hirsutum, Gossypium herbaceum and Gossypium alboreum were collected from Ayub Agriculture Research Institute, Faisalabad. The yarn of 20’s count was spun on Shirley miniature spinning unit and tested for count, lea-strength, Count Lea Strength Product value (CLSP) and unevenness (U%). The data was analyzed statistically using DMR test and presented in tabular form. The results showed that G. barbadense from long staple group and G. herbaseum from short staple cotton species presented better spinning performance.
