American Cotton

There are over 60 varietal names mentioned in census reports of American cotton, but only a few of these are srill in common cultivation, and which have stood the test of time. These are Boyd prolific, Dickson, Herlong, Peeler, Petit Gulf and Texas Stormproof. The staple length varies from about 24 to 29 mm. and yield of lint from less than 30 to over 35 per cent. It has been found, as a rule, that as the per cent of lint increases the length of staple decreases, The qualities most used of American cotton, apart from above varieties, are known as Orleans, Texas, Allanseed, Mobile, Boweds, Benders, Memphis, Uplands, Alabama and Tennessee (see under each name)
