Training on Quality Evaluation & Spinning Performance of Indian Cottons using Advanced Techniques

Cotton is produced for making various end products that range from high quality shirting to floor mat. Each product requires particular type quality of yarn and cotton fibre. It is well known that the quality of final product mostly depends on the quality of cotton fibre used. Quality of cotton fibre and yarn is specified in terms of its physical characteristics. Commercial value of cotton is determined by its physical characteristics. Hence cotton quality evaluation becomes crucial and  important in cotton trade and industry.High Volume Instrument (HVI) is used to find out fibre properties of cotton samples. High Volume Instrument can test cotton fibre properties under two different modes viz., ICC mode and HVI mode In India, most of the cotton traders and textile industries use ICC mode of High Volume Testing, whereas in cotton producing countries like USA, the HVI mode of testing is in practice. Cotton exporters in India are also familiar with HVI mode of testing as they have to submit HVI mode values to get their produce sold in international markets. In international markets, the transaction occur mainly using HVI mode fibre properties. In this context, it has been decided to introduce HVI mode fibre quality parameters for the benefit of Cotton Breeders as well as other breeding scientists working in ICAR-AICRP on Cotton.

Agricultural scientists working specially in ICAR-AICRP on cotton want to know the quality aspects of cotton and also about recent developments in instrumental evaluation of quality of cotton.

Hence, this training program is organized to inculcate cotton scientists about the various quality aspects of cotton like fibre length, fineness, strength, maturity, various modes of testing in HVI, Advanced fibre information systems
and processing steps namely ginning and spinning which contribute to the quality of cotton and yarn.

This training will be beneficial to all agricultural scientists who are engaged in the cotton improvement program of National Agricultural Research System.


  • To Impart both theoretical and practical knowledge on quality evaluation of cotton fibres
  • To equip the breeders/scientists with proficiency in understanding the fibre quality attributes Introduction
  • The production of better quality fibres from spinning potential point of view and enhanced value addition

Course Content

  • Fibre Quality Evaluation using HVI and AFIS
    • Cotton breeders/scientists have used High Volume Instrument (HVI) as their primary source of fibre quality data when making selections. Fibre data generated by Advanced Fibre Information System (AFIS) technology is also now
      available which provides additional information on length characteristics and fibre maturity.
  • Interpretation of results of HVI and AFIS
    • The understanding of relationship of different parameters obtained from the both the equipments for better control in decision making.
  • Different modes of testing in High Volume Instrument
    • The training and interpretation of different parameters obtained in ICC mode and HVI mode of testing will be imparted.
      Cotton Quality requirement for different spinning system
  • The quality requirement of different fibre attributes for various spinning system in vogue.
    • Cotton yarn quality assessment and Lea CSP Norms The relationship of different fibre quality parameters with CSP and evaluation of some of the important yarn quality attributes.

Date & Venue

  • Will be announced soon
