M. Akhtar, M. S. Cheema, Moazzam Jamil, Shaukat Ali Shahid and M. Iqbal Shahid    

Abstract: Study was conducted to evaluate the appropriate sowing time of cotton varieties/cultivars under Bahawalpur conditions. The experiment included four sowing dates started from Ist may up to 16th June, with equal intervals of fifteen days and six varieties viz., V.SLS-1, V.FVH-53, V.BH-118, V.CIM-443, V.CIM-448 with NIAB-Karishma as standard one. Regardless of the varieties/cultivars, the best results were obtained when crop was sown on 16th may. However, cotton varieties NIAB Karishma and BH-118 gave significantly higher weights in a wide range of sowing peirod i.e., from 1st May to 1st June. The highest mean seed cotton yield of 2403 kg ha-1 was obtained when crop was sown on (D2)16th may. Sowing of cotton crop befor or after this sowing date decreased yield of seed cotton significantly.
