  To study inheritance of CLCuV, nine selected varieties/lines (four resistant five susceptible) of up land cotton (G. hirsutum L.) were used for five F1 combinations. The F1 was sown for raising F2 and back crossing purpose. Subsequently P1, P2 F1, F2, BC1 and BC2 population were established and to ensure the inoculation of CLCuV no pesticide was used to control insect population. The results indicated that duplicate dominant epistasis was involved in control of resistance of CLCuV. Virus resistance was controlled by two dominant duplicate genes as F2 ratio was modified to 15:I from 9:4:4:1 and the test cross ratio was modified to 3:1 instead of 1:1.

  The node above white flower (NAWF) technique was used to monitor the growth, development and maturity of ten cotton varieties viz. Reshmi, CIM-443, MNH-93, MNH-329, MNH-395, MNH-439, S-12, FH-900, CIM-1100 and NIAB-78 during the years 1997, 1998 and 1999. The NAWF counts were made at weekly intervals. By regressing NAWF means over time, the number of days to reach NAWF of 5.0 (NAWF-5) was determined. Days to NAWF-5 were highly correlated with percent first pick of seed cotton yield. It was observed that NIAB-78 and CIM-443 achieved NAWF-5 earlier by 109.86 and 109.09 days (average of three years). Days to NAWF-5 provided a focal point for all management decisions. Therefore, it became evident that NAWF technique could be used for monitoring cotton plant after flowering, earliness determination of variety/strain and detecting fruiting problems during growth season.

  The present study was conducted on correlation and path coefficient analysis of earliness an agronomic characters of upland cotton. The results showed that node of first fruiting branch, number of monopodial and sympodial branches plant-1, number of flowers and number of bolls per plant-1, boll weight, fiber fineness (micronaire) value and fiber strength were positively and significantly correlated with yield in present material. Similarly path coefficient analysis revealed that number of sympodial branches and number of flowers plant-1, number of bolls plant-1 and boll weight had maximum direct positive effect on yield of seed cotton. Whereas, the traits number of monopodial branches plant-1, ginning out turn percentage (GOT%) and staple length had the direct negative effects on seed cotton yield plant-1. The results indicated that for evolving a superior genotype possessing all the three basic characteristics i.e. earliness, high yield and improved fiber quality of international standard, the breeder had to use the reciprocal recurrent selection method or modified back cross or three way cross within genetic material under study.

  Correlation and path coefficient in 25 local and exotic genotypes of mashbean (Vigna mungo L.) were studied to find important traits contributing towards grain yield. Observations were taken on plant height, number of branches per plant, number of pods per plant, number of seeds per pod, 100-grain weight, biological yield per plant, harvest index and grain yield per plant. All these characters were positively and highly significantly associated with grain yield except harvest index, which showed highly significant but negative correlation with grain yield. Harvest index had maximum direct effect on grain yield followed by biological yield per plant. Direct effect of plant height, number of pods per plant and 100-grain weight on grain yield was small but great indirect effects via biological yield resulted in their highly significant correlation with grain yield. Biological yield as well as all the above traits may be exploited in selecting high yielding cultivars in mashbean.
