The sugar content in cotton lint of growing bolls


, : The sugar content in cotton lint of growing bolls. Coton et Fibres Tropicales 38(2): 223-227

Trials in Israel showed that removal of maturing bolls from cotton plants did not disrupt metabolism of sugars within the fibres. Sugar content of naturally-opening bolls was close to zero for young bolls and 0.1-0.2% of fibre DM in mature bolls, but after artificial opening and rapid drying, sugar content of fibres was usually more than 0.3%, the threshold level of reductive sugars for commercial use.
