Universal grade standard samples supplied by the United States Department of Agriculture were used as the basis for a study of the operation of electronic scanning instrumentation adapted to measure the number and physical features of nonlint particles found on the surface of cotton. A series of tests was carried out to provide a preliminary evaluation of this instrumentation in the comparative classification of cotton by grade. Results of these tests forecast the potential utility of image analysis for use in the quantitative categorization of cotton based on automatic optical-electronic assessment of nonlint particulate levels.
