Communication avec actes

Résumé : Sudan Cotton Company (SCC) in collaboration with other international agencies, interested in researches on cotton stickiness launched an interdisciplinary project to test and evaluate methods for establishing the degree of stickiness in Sudanese cotton (b) develop a threshold to enable economical processing of sticky cotton and evaluate financial viability of the project. On bases of the results of testing and classification of exported cotton according to different thresholds it was found that a high percentage of Barakat cotton was free from stickiness and the other types are lightly affected. The discounted current prices are revised to cater for free and lightly affected cotton. On bases of these the project is found financially viable and the testing for stickiness is recommended to continue but on commercial bases using more sophisticated testing equipments and testing charges to be levied on the agricultural corporations.
