Performance of Four Newly Developed Upland Cotton Strains Under Lower Sindh Conditions

M. S. Chang, M. A. Chang, A. R. Lakho, A. W. Soomro and A. A. Memon    

Abstract: Four newly developed strains; MPS-2, MPS-4, MPS-7, and MPS-11, were tested against two commercial, high yielding varieties CRIS-9 and NIAB-78, for two years (1996 and 1997) for seed cotton yield per hectare, ginning out turn percentage (Got), staple length and boll weight. The highest yield of 2209 kg /ha was obtained by MPS-2, followed by MPS-11 (2090 kg /ha). The increase of top yielding strain MPS-2 over commercial varieties CRIS-9 and NIAB-78 were 13.7 and 18.3%, respectively. The highest ginning out turn (38.3 %) was given by MPS-7 and highest staple length (27.0 mm) was measured in MPS-7.
