Title: Preparing your Cotton for the Gin
Authors: Graham, Peter
Issue Date: 14-Aug-1998
Publisher: Australian Cotton Growers Research Association
Abstract: Many growers show little or no interest in their cotton once it leaves the farm gate. The only contact they have with their cotton after it leaves the farm is when the merchant, or independent classifier put a value on the cotton. The classer often makes a comment on the sample of cotton for the grower which is often only a justification for why the cotton has been called down in quality. However, when such comments as &quote;pin trash present, poor preparation, preppy cotton, immature fibres, neps&quote; etc are seen by the grower, where does the grower go? - back to the classer who can easily blame the ginner. I often wonder what growers think the function of a cotton gin is. In this presentation I will talk about some of the ways in which growers can improve the preparation of their cotton for ginning so that a better financial result can be achieved in the classing room.
