Participants in the CSITC 2009 Round Trials

The 2009 round trials for the commercial standardization of instrument testing of cotton (CSITC) were finalized at the end of December 2009. The test centers that submitted results received an official certificate in recognition of their participation; a numeric score indicating the level of performance relative to the average of all participants combining micronaire, upper-half mean length, length uniformity index, strength, Rd color and +b color; and results for each of the properties. Labs also received a detailed analysis by instrument regarding accuracy and precision to analyze measurement related problems.

The round trials were conceived by the Task Force on CSITC, a working group of the International Cotton Advisory Committee, in their efforts toward the normalization of cotton testing standards.

Participants only pay a nominal fee, as the round trials are sponsored by Project CF/ICAC 33 of the Common Fund for Commodities, which involves the Bremen Fibre Institute, Germany; the Cotton Program of the United States Department of Agriculture, USA; and the European Community, for a total financial support of $7.788 million dollars.

We appreciate the efforts of everyone involved in this endeavor, and we are publicizing the list of participants in 2009 with our congratulations.

International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC)
