TEXTILE MANUFACTURERS' MARKET VALUATION OF COTTON FIBER ATTRIBUTES

This study provides an analysis of the price-quality relationships of U.S. cotton using primary data collected from textile manufacturers, the end users of fiber. Hedonic prices of fiber attributes are estimated for three production regions - West, South Central, and South - over the 1992-95 study period. Results indicate that cotton price is determined by quality attributes and nonquality factors in the end-use market. There are similarities and differences in valuation of fiber attributes based on region of origin of the cotton.
