Effect of Endotoxin Eradication Techniques in Different Cotton Varieties with Respect to Grown Area (Location upon the Fibre Length, Strength and Micronaire Value)



M. Nawaz, Iftikhar Ahmad and M. Saleem
 
ABSTRACT

Four techniques to remove the byssinogenic agent ‘endotoxin’ from the cotton varieties grown in difference area of the punjab were applied. Autoclave technique was the best treatment for optimum endotoxin eradication alongwith minimum fiber damage. Cotton grown in Sargodha zone recorded the lowest level of endotoxin.
