Study Pertaining to the Estimation of Variability, Heritability and Genetic Advance in Upland Cotton

Basharit Ali, Iftikhar Ahmad Khan and Khalid Aziz

Abstract:
Four cotton varieties viz. 1517-75, D2-L-9-68, M-4 and CIM-240 were crossed in 4 × 4 complete diallel fashion. Means, coefficients of variability, broad sense heritability and genetic advance for various cotton plant traits were calculated. All the characters showed low coefficients of variability expect yield of seed cotton and number of bolls per plant. Broad-sense heritability estimates were prominent for number of bolls per plant, boll weight and yield of seed cotton thus suggestion that improvement for these traits can be made through selection.
