Abstract: A study of neps, their size and distribution at farm stage, before ginning and after ginning indicates that a delay in picking of cotton leads to higher nep content. Even first picking, if delayed, leads to higher neps. The nep content is closely associated with the maturity ratio as defined by AFIS instrument. A study of frequency distribution indicates that neps and seed coat neps increase but their size reduces after ginning.
