  Heterosis studies were carried out in six intra specific hybrids of G. hirsutum L. for number of sympodial branches, number of bolls, boll weight and seed cotton yield per plant on an average performance. All hybrids gave better results than their parents. Highest increase of hybrids 69.23% for boll weight was over their parents was observed followed by 64.24% for seedcotton yield, 22.97% for number of bolls and 19.62% for number of sympodia per plant.

  Twelve parents in fourteen cross combinations were studied for heterosis in F1 and inbreeding depression in F2 populations for seedcotton yield, number of bolls per plant, ginning out turn %, staple length and uniformity ratio. Seedcotton yield and number of bolls expressed fair amount of heterosis, however, hybrids showing higher magnitudes of heterosis were generally associated with higher amount of inbreeding depression suggesting dominant genes functioning for these traits. Small amount of heterosis, lower magnitude of inbreeding depression for lint percent, staple length and uniformity ratio indicated that additive genes were responsible for the expressions of these traits. Hybrid vigor recorded in F1 in respect of seedcotton yield per plant ranged from 4.5 to 159.0 percent, whereas in bolls per plant, ginning out turn, staple length and uniformity ratio the range was 0 to 150.0, -1.5 to 11.7, 0.7 to 13.0 and -2.0 to 11.1% respectively.

  Studies were under taken to assess the yield, earliness and insect pest resistance of some newly developed okra leaf strains compared with normal leaf commercial varieties CRIS-9 and NIAB-78. Accordingly, almost all the okra leaf mutants yielded better than NIAB-78. Out of nine okra leaf strains, throb were better yields, two equally good and four gave low yield than CRIS-9 the second check variety. Highest yielding okra leaf strain produced 27 and 35 percent higher yield than CRIS-9 and NIAB-78 respectively. Okra leaf strains were documented as early maturing, whitefly tolerant and boll rot disease resistant. Realizing the better performance of okra leaf strains with reduced insecticide applications, the commercial utilization of these varieties in Sindh can not be ignored and may prove better replacement of current cultivars.
