A STUDY OP THE VARIABLE COMPOSITION OF COTTON SEED
By G. S. ieloy, Senior Marketing Specialist,
f Division of Cotton Marketing
The idea that all cotton seed are of equal value in the hands of
the oil miller, unless they have spoiled or become damaged is rather
prevalent in the minds of growers, and still exists in the minds of
somo of those engaged in the crushing of cotton seed. During the last
ten or fifteen years the more progressive of the oil millers have
appreciated the fact that cotton seed varies widely in composition and
therefore in the quantity of the extractable products, and they have
taken advantage of this information in their purchases of seed.
Because of these variables and in the absence of a method of
grading, considerable confusion as to the basis of purchases has ex-
isted in the industry, and the producers and dealers in cotton seed
have not received value conmensurate with the quality of the different
lots of the seed produced and offered for sale to the oil mills.
A number of efforts have been made in the past to devise a
method for grading cotton seed for crushing purposes, but pone of the
plans heretofore suggested has proved practicable. In the Spring of
1929 a plan was reported by the author, 1i/ in which the two chief
Ingredients of cotton seed, oil and armonia, wero reduced to similar
terms so that the quantitative relation of any lot of cotton sueed could
be determlnod relative to a basis description of seed.
The grade, or percentage relation, is determined by the following
forsnuila: Twecnty times the percentage of oil plus fifty tires the pcr-
centage of armmonia, divided by 5.55, equals the index or grade. Grade
100 ia the basis for price quotation. Cotton socd having a Grade above
100 are premium seed, and those having a grade below 100 are discount
This plan for trading cotton necd was ndontod by the '".tlcnal
Cottonseed Products ALsoriatior. at its annual convoa.tion in. "',': Orleans
in Kay, 1930, and became a trading rule covf.ring pu-c:.a's- s .-Vtt-n

It thus becazm necessary to determine the factors that might affect th i
sufficiency of the saumplo and accurate methods of analyzing samples of
cotton stood. For this purpoacse an intorbureau committoo was appointed,
known as the Committes on !ethods of Sampling and Analyzing Cotton '|
Seed. 3/ I"
On A'rll 14, 1930, nt Hot Springs, Arkansas, this committee
presented a prcliminery report of its findings. This report was the
basis of Rules 240 and 270, governing the sampling and handling of .
cottonsood samples and analyzing cotton sood, which wore approved by .I
the Amcrlcan Oil Chemists Society and adopted by the National Cottonsoee
Products Association at their conventions in lay, 1l30. .::
Tho duta prosuntod in this report show the wide range of varia-
tion of the to o principal ingrodionta, oil and anmonia, found in different
lots of cotton scod, and demonstrate the desirability of grading this
valuable acoed crop of the South. Heretofore, purchases have boon made on '
the estimated avcragu value of the seed produced in thc various sections i
as might be affected temporarily by local climatic or cultural conditions.
Variations in Ccrapositlon cf Zotton Seood of Difforont Crops i
A study of the variations in composition of cotton acseed produced
in each county of each Stato in tho Cotton Bult has becn undortakon in
the hope that some facts might be found regarding the factors influonc- i
ing thz claborLtion of oil and srEonia in cotton scod. This is the first
study of this kind that has bccn made and little or no information rela- :
tivo to pr-vious season s is available with the exception of some incom-
picto ronorts from "*ccLs County, Texas. For this county sufficient

I per cent of the samples analyzed feloil in this class.
STho lowest class of cotton seeood produced in 1929 was class 14.
SOf tho aaplo andlyzeod that year,. 3.5 per cent fell in this class.
The lowest class of cotton seed oroducod in 1930 was class 15,
and 1.8 per cent of the analyses floil in this class.
The lowoaest oil content reported for seed produced in the year
1928 was 10.57 per cent, and the highest was 18.57 per cent. (Table 1.)
Of the seed produced in the year 1929, the loncat oil content reported was
21.41 per cent. (Tablq 2.) In the your 1930 the lowest oil content was
found to be 15.55 por cent, and the highest, 20.24 oDr cent. (Table 3.)
Although there is a wide range of variation in the armionia
content in each of thcso classus, especially in class 17 in the year
1930 (Table 3.), where the variation in ammonia content was from 3.34
par cent to 4,70 per cent the. inverse ratio 4/ between the percentage
of ammonia and of oil is apparent from the colurms of weighted average
oil and weighted average in onia for the crops of both 1929 and 1930.
Cotton seed produced in Nuocos County, Texas, were bought and
sold on grade for the'first tixne during the season Df 1930. The grades
givon in Tables 1 and 2 (1928) (1929) have been calculated to show
what grades would have obtained if the grading of cotton seed had boon
in operation during thoso seasons.
The available yields of oil ',orc calculated by the formula: 5/
Percentage of oil multiplied by 2,000, minus 65, equals pounds of
available oil. Difforunt lots of seed produced in Nueces County, Texas,
in 1928 varied In available oil per ton of aeood from 146.4 pounds to
308.4 pounds. In saced produced in 1929 the variation in available oil
ranged from 215.4" pounds to 563.2 pounds.. The variation in available
oil in cotton seed produced in thi year 1930 was marc narrow than
during either of the tno -provious oars, ranging from 246.0 pounds to
The available .8-pcr-ccnt-amronia cake (41.13 p-r cent protein)
per ton of seed was calculated by the following formula: 5/ F7-rcentage
of ammonia multiplled by 0.925, rraltiplied by 2,00C, and divided by 8,
equals available pounds of 2-p r-cont-amronia cuke.

Possible Influence of Rainfall on the Conosition of Cotton Seed
In L!ueces County, Texas, the harvesting of cotton begins the last
of July and is Dractically comnietod by the end of Senteriber. Therefore
the growing season for cotton may be regarded as ending with July. For
the purpose of studying the climatic conditions that nirht influence the
development of the plant arnd the elaboration of oil and protein in the seed,
the year ay be considered as begi.-inrg with August and cr.dir.g with the
following July. An examination. of the m'ar. monthly tenpratures during
the period August, 1927, through July, 153C, shows no significant differ-
ences, but there are significant differences 'n the ra-.rnfull. (T.hle 5.
In Table 5 the data have b.-en grouped by mnrntM and periods of
the year. The months August to Deccnbcr Lre grFukod togett.cr to show the

to show the distribution of procipitation d'.rirng the growing period of
- 7 -
the cotton plnt.m; J and July, to sNw the distribution and emunt
of rainfall during te period of growth and cdevelophent of the bolls.
The 1928 ecop of cotton seue! was -rovn on a total of 18.95
inches atof rainfall, of which 7.48 inches fell !n the months of january,
February, Larch, April, and tay. Tho fruit was matured on 7.32 inches,
whirh fell in June and July, 6.9 inches of which fell in June.
The 1929 crop of cotton send wns rowrn on a total of 3957.08 inches,
of which 7.96 inches fell from Januury to !'.ay, inclusive. Tho fruit was "......
matured on 5.37 inches, which fell in June rind July, of which 1.59 inches I
fell in June.
The 1930 crop ofeotton seed was prown on a total of 21.38 inches, 4
of wh'ch 9.24 inches fell from January to i.y, inclusive: The fruit
was mautrued on 1.98 inches, of which C.69 inches fell in Juno.
Considering August and Suptorbor is the principal 'harvest
mnornt,, the three crops wore harvested under precipitations of 17.18
inches In 1928; 5.24 inches in 1929; a.nd 4.4 inrhos of rain in 1930,.
The distribution of the rainfall during the months of January
to ?May, inclusive, was more uniform in 1930, and possibly more nearly
ample, than in either 1929 or 1928.
The nrecipltatlon in the month of Juno is possibly significant,
esrezially since heavy rainfall is frequently followed by heavy boll
wccvil infestation. In Juno, 1928, 6.99 inc'h-s fell; in June 1929,
1.59 inches; and June, 1930, 0.69 inehes. The; soed Droducod ia 1928
w:r: the most irregular in composition, tkr^se -reduced in 1930 were
the most uniform in composition, and those 'rodu-ud in 1929 wore
intcrrmodlato in regularity of connosition.

bought and sold on grade and therefore were perhaps more completely J
analyzed than aoed produced during any previous season. Anproximately, iii
one analysis was made to ovary 50 tons of seed available for crushing. *i1
A record was kept of the datos on which each lot of seed analyzed was '|
produced at the gins. Tables 6, 7, and 8 show those analyses classified
and tabulated according to the months in which the seed were produced.
Of the saced produced in 1930, 45.6 per cent Was harvested in
August; 44.7 per cent in Septembor; and 9.7 par cent in October.
During the month of August, 1930 (Table 6), one half of one per
cent of the cotton seed analyzed wcro found in class 15; 14.2 por cent
of the shipments fell in class 16; 46.7 per cant in class 17; 34.3 per
cent in class 18; 3.8 per cent in class 19; and one half of one per
cent in class 20. The lowest oil content of any lot of seed enalyzod ws
15.76 per cont, and the highest was 20.24 per cent,
During August the lowest actual moisture content reported, 5.70
per cent, was found in class 17; and the highest actual moisture content,
11.98 per cent, was found in class 16. The lowest weighted average
moisture content was found in the seed in class 15.00. A gradual increase
in the moisture content is shown from class to class, the highest
iwclpFhted average moisture content, 8.77 per cent, being found in class 20.
Those comparisons mirht indicate that annroximatoly 8 per cent
moisture in the seed is normal for cotton seed in "ucces County, Texas,
and thit subnormal moisture is correlated with retarded elaboration of
oil in the seed.
The ann-onis content of different lots of seed dcliv.red during
A4-ust ranged from 3.69 n-r cent to 4.61 per cent.
The -.oifhtod average oil content fcr the month was 17.76 per
cer.nt; annonia content 4.34 per cent; and grade, 103.1. Only one
analysis of soed delivered durire August showed that the seed contained
in oxress of 1.8 por cent free fatty acids. This lot of cotton seed
contained 2.9 par cent free fatty acids and may havo been seed held
over from tho previous season.
During Sontenribcr, 190 theo lowest oil content in any lot of soed
7;.s four.d to be 15.55 par cent, and the highest, 16.88 per cent.
(TfTtl 7.) Both the low'oat an onia contenr.t, 3.34 per cent, and the
highest anonia content, 4.70 p-r cant, in seed produced in the season
of 19:0, -was found in sacd dolivored in Sc-'tomber. Both wore found in
eliss 17. Tho only other analysis during tho season sho-.inr excess
