JCR | The efficacy of chemical topping in field-grown cotton is mediated by drip irrigation amount in irrigated agricultural area
By Fan Qin on May 30, 2022

Agronomy & physiology JCR

[Background] Cotton production in China is challenged by high labor input including manual topping (MT). Recently, to replace MT in the Xinjiang cotton region of China, mepiquat chloride (MC) was applied once more than the traditional multiple-application; this was designated as chemical topping (CT), but it is unclear whether the amount of irrigat...

JCR | Metabolic profile analysis based on GC-TOF/MS and HPLC reveals the negative correlation between catechins and fatty acids in the cottonseed of Gossypium hirsutum
By Fan Qin on May 30, 2022

Biomol - Biotechnology JCR

[Background] The diversified and high value-added utilization of cotton by products can promote the sustainable development of modern agriculture. Differences in potential nutrients among varieties can be explained by variations in the composition and abundance of fatty acids, polyphenols, carbohydrates, amino acids, and organic acids. Therefore, t...

JCR | Impact assessment of genetically modified herbicide-tolerant cotton on arthropod communities
By Fan Qin on May 20, 2022

Crop Protection Biomol - Biotechnology JCR

[Background] Cotton (Gossypium spp.) is one of the most important economic crops worldwide, and its production plays an important role in the economy of many countries. Genetically modified herbicide-tolerant (GMHT) crops, which were developed to minimize the losses caused by weeds, have gradually become the most widely adopted genetically modified...

JCR | Thellungiella halophila ST103 enhances salt tolerance in Gossypium hirsutum
By Fan Qin on May 20, 2022

Breeding & Genetic improvement Agronomy & physiology JCR

[Background] Cotton (Gossypium hirsutum), the major textile fiber crop of the world, is negatively affected by salinity. It leads to the induction of adverse effects on growth and development of cotton. The overall yield of cotton faces major drawback once they are grown in saline soil. To improve cotton salt tolerance, transgenic approach offers a...

JCR | Management of cotton bollworms Helicoverpa armigera and Earias vittella by entomopathogenic nematodes
By Fan Qin on May 17, 2022

Pest control JCR

[Background] The bollworm complex consisting of Helicoverpa armigera and Earias vittella is a major threat in cotton production globally. The habit of developing resistance to many insecticides including Bt transgenic cotton necessitates the exploration of an alternate strategy to manage bollworms. The entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN) Steinernema c...

JCR | Fourier transform infrared spectral features of plant biomass components during cotton organ development and their biological implications
By Fan Qin on May 17, 2022

Agronomy & physiology JCR

[Background] The majority of attenuated total reflection Fourier transform infrared (ATR FT-IR) investigations of cotton are focused on the fiber tissue for biological mechanisms and understanding of fiber development and maturity, but rarely on other cotton biomass components. This work examined in detail the ATR FT-IR spectral features of various...

JCR | Characters and structures of the nucleobase–ascorbate transporters (NAT) family genes in Gossypium hirsutum and their roles in responding to salt and drought stresses
By Fan Qin on May 17, 2022

Breeding & Genetic improvement Biomol - Biotechnology JCR

[Background] Nucleobase–ascorbate transporters (NAT), synonymously called nucleobase–cation symporter 2 (NCS2) proteins, were earlier reported to be involved in plant growth, development and resistance to stress. Previous studies concluded that s a polymorphic SNP associated with NAT12 was significant different between salt-tolerant and salt-sensit...

JCR | Effect of nitrogen application level on cotton fibre quality
By Fan Qin on Mar 10, 2022

Agronomy & physiology JCR

[Abstract] The nitrogen (N) requirements of cotton are well understood and have been extensively studied since 1887, with practical guides, decision support systems, models and recent reviews providing information on the importance of providing cotton crops with a sufficient supply of nutrients and improving nitrogen use efficiency. Given that the...

JCR | Thellungiella halophila ST5 improves salt tolerance in cotton
By Fan Qin on Mar 8, 2022

Agronomy & physiology Biomol - Biotechnology JCR

[Background] Salinity is a major abiotic stress to global agriculture which hampers crop growth and development, and eventually reduces yield. Transgenic technology is an effective and efficient approach to improve crop salt tolerance but depending on the availability of effective genes. We previously isolated Salt Tolerance5 (ThST5) from the halop...

JCR | A review of phosphorus nutrition in irrigated cotton farming systems of Australia
By Fan Qin on Mar 4, 2022

Agronomy & physiology JCR

[Abstract] Australian cotton production predominantly occurs on Vertisols. The average lint yield of cotton grown in Australia is 2 260–2 700 kg·hm−2, which is 2.5 to 3 times the world average. This high productivity per unit of land area requires efficient use of resources such as water and nutrients. However, high yields accelerate the export of...

JCR | Advances and prospects of genetic mapping of Verticillium wilt resistance in cotton
By Fan Qin on Mar 4, 2022

Breeding & Genetic improvement Disease control Crop Protection JCR

[Abstract] Verticillium wilt is one of the most important diseases affecting cotton production in China. The fungus, Verticillium dahliae, has a wide host range and a high degree of genetic variability. No resistance resources have been found in the available planting resources, thus presenting difficulties and challenges for our study. The long-te...
