Question of the Week: Cotton Fibers

Last week the question was:  How many individual fibers are in a cotton boll?

A cotton boll can have as many as 250,000 to 500,000 fibers in each boll.  In the long staple upland cotton that we grow in the Pee Dee region, each strand is between 1.125 and 1.25 inches long.  For more information, the National Cotton Council of America website can tell you everything you ever wanted to know about cotton.

 

Here is this week’s question:  Which disease has infected this muscadine vine?
