Yield Response of Indigineousely Evolved Upland Cotton Genotypes for Various Traits in National Coordinated Varietal Trails (NCVT) Under Multan Conditions

Muhammad Afzal, M. Arshad, M. Idrees and Noor Illahi


Studies were conducted at Central Cotton Research Institute, Multan, to exploit the yield response of five newly evolved cotton genotypes. The highest seed cotton yield was noted in CIM-435 followed by BH-118. The longest staple length was found by genotype CIM-435. MNH-554 was at the top in respect of ginning out turn percentage, followed by CIM-435. The boll weight was highest in CIM-435.The highest numbers of bolls/plant were found in BH-118. DNH-49 had the shortest plant height followed by CIM-435, which is quite desirable. It is suggested that the newly evolved genotype CIM-435 is the best, among all the genotypes tested.
