Gourlot J.P., Bragg C.K., Wessinger J.D.. 2000. In : Gillham Fred M. (ed.). New frontiers in cotton research : Proceedings of the world cotton research conference - 2, Athens, Greece, September 6-12, 1998. Washington : ICAC, p. 1009-1012. World Cotton Research Conference. 2, 1998-09-06/1998-09-12, Athènes (Grèce).

Using the Refèrence Test Method discussed in Part 1, cotton from a number of locations throughout the world were tested to establish or verify reference values. Test results for Selected cottons were compared to conventional laboratory methods to demonstrate the relationship between methods. The results demonstrate that the Reference Test Methodfor HVI strength measurements can be a useful tool in arbitration disputes and in providing independent verification of calibration cotton values.
