In Egypt, the problem of cotton varieties deterioration has been the subject of concern since the early days of Egyptian cotton cultivation. It appears to be true, that many varieties in the early years of this century went out of cultivation because they were mixed by “strange” cotton- seed and deteriorated, rather than  they  were  valueless in  their pure state. Naturally, the economic losses incurred by deterioration led Egyptian government to pay attention  to  this problem and means to maintain the cottonseed production areas of such high quality varieties.
