Six Egyptian cotton varieties and two Upland cottons (Burkina Faso and Uzbekistan) based on a wide range of fiber properties i.e., fiber length, fiber strength, fiber elongation, short fiber content and micronaire reading measured by HVI, AFIS " as High Volume Instrument" and new device Cotton Classification System (CCS-Textechno) "as Medium Volume Instrument" were analyzed and compared. The correlation among the three cotton testing methods was determined. The results indicated that both HVI, AFIS measurements were found to be comparable to the CCS except fiber elongation property.
