Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fiber that grows in a boll, or protective case, around the seeds of the cotton plants of the genus Gossypium in the mallow family Malvaceae. The fiber is almost pure cellulose. Under natural conditions, the cotton bolls will increase the dispersal of the seeds.
The plant is a shrub native to tropical and subtropical regions around the world, including the Americas, Africa, and India. The greatest diversity of wild cotton species is found in Mexico, followed by Australia and Africa.Cotton was independently domesticated in the Old and New Worlds.
Cotton linters are fine, silky fibers which adhere to the seeds of the cotton plant after ginning. Linters are traditionally used in the manufacture of paper and as a raw material in the manufacture of cellulose. We are the exporter of cotton linter form India to international markets. India produces an excess of linter, mainly in Andhra Pradesh.
We can provide durable and high-quality linter as per client specifications and standards. Our durable quality makes linter ideal for producing long life archival papers and other high-quality papers and viscose. This environment-friendly alternative can replace the use of wood and other precious natural resources while making paper, viscose and other products.
Cottonseed hulls are the outer coverings of cotton seeds, and the by-products of the dehulling necessary for cottonseed oil extraction. After removing the lint, the hulls are separated from the kernel by screening. Cottonseed hulls are a fibrous product, primarily used to feed ruminants . Cottonseed hulls are fed as a bulk feed, or pelleted. They are sometimes mixed with cottonseed meal to create a higher density product that is easier to transport and handle .
Cottonseed hulls are one of the best roughages used to add bulk to diets rich in protein and energy, in order to reduce digestive upsets in ruminants (Lane, 2006). Cottonseed hulls are a valuable substrate for mushroom cultivation and the spent substrate can be fed to livestock . Cottonseed hulls also have numerous industrial uses such as plastic manufacture, oil drilling (mud additive) and furfural production (a solvent used in plastic and synthetic rubber production and in petroleum refining) .
Red Chillies, cultivated on a branched, shrub-like herb, are used in varied cuisines ranging from Indian and Thai to Mexican, to add a vibrant hue and spiciness to dishes. Grown in Karnataka, this chilli has a mild heat and is particularly valued for the bright red color it imparts.
Red chillies are used to flavour most curries and dry dishes. It is typically lightly fried with oil in the initial stages of preparation of the dish. Whole red chillies are dried or pickled in order to store them for a long period of time.
