FCG - HVI Color Chart
FCG (fiber color grade) is determinded based on HVI Color Chart, a chart that shows the graphic plot of the distribution of reflectance (Rd) and yellowness (+b) for American Upland cotton. It includes color grades for white, light spotted, spotted, tinged and yellow stained cotton
