Abstract: The object of this study was to screen out the best genotype under central Sindh conditions. Four promising advance strains viz., CRIS-2, CRIS-19, CRIS-52 and CRIS-79 were tested against two commercial checks NIAB-78 and CRIS-9. On an average of three years, CRIS-52 ranked first and produced 2671 kg ha -1 seedcotton yield very closely followed by CRIS-19 that yielded 2666 kg ha -1. The increase of top yielding strain CRIS-52 over commercial check NIAB-78 and CRIS-9 was 16.5 and 10.6 % respectively. The lowest yield of 2230 kg ha -1 was produced by NIAB-78. Highest ginning outturn of 34.8 % was given by CRIS-19 and longest staple of 26.4 mm was measured by CRIS-9.
