443) for all five varieties, with Pima having the highest correlation coefficient. The mass of seed fibers (fiber and seed) and fibers as in linear density have both shown to be reliable indicators for the stage of fiber development. The seed fiber weights increase linearly with fiber development. With developing fibers, the strength and seed fiber weight relationship is similar to that of the strength-dpa relationship. Therefore, it is quite conceivable that fiber strength may be projected from seed fiber weight throughout the secondary cell wall synthesis stage when such strength-seed fiber weight correlations have been established.
