Effect of Cotton Leaf Curl Virus Disease on Morphology, Yield and Fibre Characteristics of Susceptible Lines/cultivars of Cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.)

Ghayour Ahmad, Saeed Ahmad Malik, Zahid Mamood, Muhammad Zaffar Iqbal, Saghir Ahmad and Saeed Ahmad    

Abstract: Three local as well as exotic leaf curl virus susceptible lines/cultivars of cotton, i.e., S-12, Acala-1517-C and CIM-70 were evaluated for yield, yield components and fibre traits. This disease had adverse effect on morphological, yield and yield components and fibre quality of all varieties. The cv. CIM-70 exhibited the highest reduction (87.3 %) in seed cotton yield and staple length (7.1 %) due to cotton leaf curl virus disease. The extent of adverse effects of this disease was most prominent on ginning out-turn (-18.2 %) and fibre fineness (23.8 %) of S-12.
