  Two preliminary earliness indicators (days taken to open first flower and main stem node number of first sympodial branch) were evaluated in an experiment, to check their reliability and also to screen out most early varieties for further exploitation in breeding programs as well as at the farmers fields. The results demonstrated that DNH-49 significantly opened its first flower (44 DAP) earlier than other strains hence was observed as early maturing variety followed by CRIS-82 (45 DAP). CIM-482 opened its first flower after 48 days of planting and was observed as late, followed by FH-900 (47 DAP). As regards the second character (node number of first sympodial branch), the same trend of earliness was observed as in days taken to open first flower. Accordingly, DNH-49 produced significantly lowest main stem node number of first sympodial branch (7.1) and was recorded as early followed by CRIS-82 (7.2) and NIAB-999 (7.3). CIM-482 and FH-900 were observed as late strains in the test which produced significantly highest main stem node number of first sympodial branch (8.6) followed by BH-121 (8.5). The results demonstrated that the two indicators studied are reliable and efficient while predicting the earliness of any variety during the crop development stage.

  A four-parent di-allel cross including CRIS-5A, CRIS-9, CRIS-52 and CRIS-54, cultivars of Gossypium hirsutum was analyzed for heterosis, heterobeltiosis and economic heterosis. The traits studied were the number of sympodia, bolls per plant, boll weight and seedcotton yield. Results revealed that seedcotton yield was dependent on number of bolls per plant (whenever the heterosis for number of bolls per plant went high heterosis for seedcotton yield was also increased). Four hybrids CRIS-52 x CRIS-54, CRIS-5A x CRIS-52, CRIS-52 x CRIS-9 and CRIS-54 x CRIS-52, exhibiting more than 70% of all types of heterosis were singled out.
