Genetics of Yield and its Contributing Traits in Upland Cotton
Dec 21, 2018

WCRC WCRC2 Breeding

Line x tester analysis involving three males (testers) and fourteen females (lines) with adaptable and broad genetic base was conducted for yield and its contributing traits in upland cotton. Additive genetic variance and non-additive genetic variance primarily controlled seed cotton yield and lint index. Boll number, boll weight and ginning percentage were controlled by additive genetic variance. However, seed index was controlled by non-additive genetic variance
