Introduction:
Fiber maturity is a fiber characteristic which expresses the relative degree of thickening of the fiber wall. In the other words, it is the measure of primary and secondary wall thickness. A fiber will be mature if a high degree of wall thickening took place during cotton growth.
Relation between Immaturity Count and Fiber Weight

Let,

N = Rod like normal fibers,
D = Dead fibers (Ribbon like)
H = Actual fiber weight per cm
Hs = Standard fiber wt. per cm

Peirce and Lord found N-D and H for several pure strains or cotton and within each series only the maturity varied. A linear relationship was found between H and N-D:

H = 0.9370 (N-D) + 135.2
And, Hs = 0.9370 (67-7) + 135.2

According to standard counting,

The no. of normal fiber, N = 67
And the no. of dead fiber, D = 7

                                                         H          Actual fiber weight per cm
Now, we know the Maturity ratio, M =…… = ………………………………………
                                                         Hs         Standard fiber wt. per cm


    0.9370 (N-D) + 135.2
= ………………………………………
    0.9370 (67-7) + 135.2

    0.9370 (N-D) + 135.2
= …………………………………..
               191.42

= 0.0049 (N-D) + 0.706

                                      N-D
For rounded figure, M = …………… + 0.7   
                                       200
[It is the relation between immaturity count and fiber wt.]

The maturity ratio is therefore proportional to the degree of thickening of the cell wall.

  1. Immaturity is the incapacity to use one's intelligence without the guidance of another. See the link below for more info.
