The opportunity to increase agricultural areas is limited so that increasing demands can be achieved by producing more products from existent agricultural areas. Double cropping is a sustainable practice in which more than one crop is grown and harvested at the same time, on the same ground. This study was carried out to determined fiber technological properties of growing cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) as second crop on sttuble of ridge planted wheat in Diyarbakır in 2012. The experiment was conducted of the experimental area of Dicle University Agricultural Faculty as Randomize Complete Block Design with three replications. Eight cotton lines/varieties  (Berke,  Lachata,  BA  119,  STV  468,  STV  373, O· zbek 100, Fantom and DP 396) were used as material. The results indicated that STV 468,Fantomand Berke in terms of  seed  cotton yield; Fantom, Berke in terms of fiber length; DP 396 and Berke in terms of fiber strength had given highest values. However results showed that whether very early cotton varieties are grown, cotton will be grown as second crop after ridge planted wheat in the stubble seedling under Diyarbakir ecological condition.
