New Ugandan cotton standards

In July we welcomed representatives from the Cotton Development Organisation (CDO) of Uganda who delivered a new set of cotton standards.

We are pleased to confirm that the standards have been inspected and approved (in line with ICA Bylaws) and have now been adopted as the ICA Official Standards for Ugandan cotton, replacing the set that became effective on 31 July 2008.

  • Roller ginned: Grades UCON, UCOB, UCOP, UCOA, UCOM
  • Saw ginned: Grades UCOSA I, UCOSA II

The ICA holds the largest collection of world-wide Cotton Grade Standards, which represent the current crops of cotton grown in each country. They serve as a benchmark in international trading.
