Title: Validity of plant fiber length measurement : a review of fiber length measurement based on kenaf as a model

Author: Han, James S.; Mianowski, Theodore.; Lin, Yi-yu.;

Date: 1999

Source: [Kenaf properties, processing and products. Mississippi State, MS : Mississippi State University, Ag & Bio Engineering, 1999].:p. [149]-167.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The efficacy of fiber length measurement techniques such as digitizing, the Kajaani procedure, and NIH Image are compared in order to determine the optimal tool. Kenaf bast fibers, aspen, and red pine fibers were collected from different anatomical parts, and the fiber lengths were compared using various analytical tools. A statistical analysis on the validity of the fiber length measurements of each method was obtained. Using this analysis, a relationship was developed between fiber length, growth, and pulping conditions.

Keywords: Fibers, Kenaf, Length, Measurement, Methodology
