Cotton has been called the "crop that clothes the world" for it is estimated 1that three-fourths to nine-tenths of the world's clothing supply is made of cotton fabrics. The fiber is of more value to mankind than any other textile fiber because of its cheapness, its availability and its varied usefulness.
