Abstract: The bundle tenacity and crystallite orientation of cotton fibres of 25 varieties of Gossypium barbadense species grown at Coimbatore farm of the Central Institute for Cotton Research in 1983 crop year were determined. The crystallite orientation was expressed in term of 40, 50 and 75% X-ray angles and the Hermans orientation factor, and the average orientation angle αm was computed from the latter. The bundle tenacity and the orientation parameters were correlated. A conclusion of the study is that the varieties should be characterized for strength on the basis of the Hermans factor and not the X-ray angles conventionally used.
