Classification Services  
The objective of the Grading and Classing program for cotton is to facilitate interstate and foreign commerce in cotton by providing official quality determinations that aid in marketing. AMS accomplishes this goal by inspecting, identifying, and certifying that product quality is in accordance with official standards. The program determines the quality of the current crop and of the annual carryover.
