The 2004 EFS Conference in Greenville, South Carolina is hosted by Cotton Incorporated and brings together all segments of the United States cotton industry, but it has a special emphasis on cotton textiles. Textile fiber quality is important durin these meetings and 2004 was no exception. There are low-cost textile manufacturers who make their living off buying up discounted cotton, running it through their mills to make lower-quality items. Lower quality cottons, which includes a base grade among some international markets, will be sold, but only at a discount. That is why private and public cottonseed breeders have redoubled efforts to bring new varieties that offer consistent high yields and fiber qualities that meet customers' needs.
