The cotton fiber quality evaluation program provides fiber analysis to LAES cotton research programs involved in developing, improving and preserving the quality of cotton fiber. Cotton is marketed and processed by the textile industry on the basis of its fiber properties.

Introduction. Cotton (Gossypium spp.) fibers are the most important source of cellulose for the global textile cally, they are single‐celled seed trichomes, which differentiate from ovule epidermal cells in two waves.

The data are used to track and estimate U.S. consumer demand for textiles, monitor trends in fiber share, and provide insight into the level of world mill use of cotton.

Cotton is the most abundantly produced natural fiber and its production supports the livelihoods of over million people. Despite its global importance, cotton production is beset by a number of environmental and social challenges that undermine the sustainability of the sector as a whole.

In sheer numbers, cotton is the most widely used textile fiber in the world, and manufacturers can spin this fabric into a myriad of different types of products. For instance, most T-shirts contain at least some amount of cotton, and true blue jeans are percent cotton. Therefore, the interactive integration between the high-end producer services and textile industry in Zhejiang should be promoted, in order to enhance the quality and efficiency of the textile.

The New Cotton Project is a direct response to these problems, offering a valuable solution for textile waste and an alternative to the industry’s reliance on virgin materials like cotton, which require vast areas of agricultural land, unsustainable amounts of water and polluting fertilisers and pesticides for cultivation.
