The article focuses on lint quality that matters to the customer and to the bottom line of the grower. When deciding which variety of cotton to plant, growers do so based on how that variety is expected to impact their bottom line. One of the factors determining that bottom line is the quality of the fiber. Consideration must be given to expected yield, fiber quality characteristics and how much it costs to produce the crop. All of these factors must be evaluated in light of climate and agronomic conditions.
