Riazud Din Ahmad, Abdul Jabbar Malik, Mohammad Ali Chang, Gul Hassan and Mohammad Subhan    

Abstract: An 8-parent diallel cross experiment was conducted on Gossypium hirsutum L. to estimate the manifestation of heterosis and heterobeltiosis for yield and its components viz; No. bolls of /plant, seed cotton yield/plant, seeds/boll and staple length. Out of fifty six F1 hybrids, 51 hybrids showed positive heterosis in case of bolls/plant, 47 in yield of seed cotton/plant, 47 in No. of seeds/boll and 48 in Staple length. Heterobeltiotic values were recorded 55 in bolls/plant, 31 for yield of seed cotton, 32 for No. of seeds/boll and 43 for staple length as positive values.
