The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has purchased 40 Uster® HVI Classing systems from Switzerland-based Uster Technologies AG for the 2005 cotton season. The addition of the new systems brings to approximately 250 the number of HVI systems the USDA operates from 12 classing offices located in the cotton-growing regions of the United States.
