This article informs that after two years of studying the link between cotton origin and spinning performance a U.S. mill announced it will not accept any Georgia grown cotton after this year. According to Matthew Thomas, technical director at Frontier Spinning Mills Inc., the company's research in 2003 and 2004 showed a greater occurrence of "ends down" in cotton grown in Georgia, versus cotton grown in four other states. In 2003, the top five states supplying cotton to the plant were evaluated for ends down rate.
