Technical Abstract: This presentation informed the Arizona cotton industry about some of the current research being conducted at the USDA-ARS cotton ginning and textile processing laboratories. Projects included gin-based fiber quality measurements; cotton stickiness detection; identification of contamination sources; electronic module management system; new ginning system for cotton breeders; machine-vision detection and ejection of plastics in seed cotton; value added cotton by-products; mechanical delinting; drying system energy use audits; improving fiber length uniformity with experimental lint cleaners; high-capacity roller gin reclaimer; thermal plastic capture; and electrostatic plastic extraction.
