DescriptionThe 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.
