The article reports some textile mills may be disparaging and even rejecting future shipments of Georgia-grown cotton, but others apparently are attempting to buy all of the fiber they can get. The performance of a particular cotton for a specific application in one mill is not an indication of how it will perform in another mill. The fact or the perception that there is a production area or a growth that had a reputation or a suspicion of inferiority or some problem represents opportunity for merchants or mills.
