"Unless cotton sets n research which is bie enough nnd ffcrtlve enoiiRh In meet Hint clial- encc (of competitive fibers), we •an expect stnKKcrlng losses for Hie cotton farmer m the years ahead," Dr. Home said. On the other hand, he predicted hat "if cotton Rds adequate research, supported by adequate developmental woik and merchiuuilsini; >rugifinis. thc]-e is no cause for defeatism but i;ootl cause for optimism •ibnut Hie competitive position of this liber."
