Abstract: A single nucleotide polymorphism is the simplest form of genetic variation among individuals and can induce minor changes in phenotypic, physiological and biochemical characteristics. This polymorphism induces various mutations that alter the sequence of a gene which can lead to observed changes in amino acids. Several assays have been de...

Mep Plus – A Newly Registered PGR
By Muhammad Naveed Arshad on Apr 26, 2019

WCRC WCRC2

ABSTRACT MepPlus is a premix of Mepiquat Chloride and Bacillus cereus (BP01). It gained full EPA registration in 1997 for use on cotton. The B. cereus component has a tolerance exemption on all crops. MepPlus was extensively tested by university researchers across the US cotton belt in 1996 and 1997. It provides both significantly higher lint yiel...

Effect of Four Growth Regulators
By Muhammad Naveed Arshad on Apr 26, 2019

WCRC WCRC2

ABSTRACT The effect of four plant growth regulators (PGRs) on crop performance, fruiting pattern, yield and fiber quality in cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) was evaluated in field experiments for two years in Greece. All four PGRs (Cytokin, Cytoplex, PHCA and Atonic) increased seedcotton yield and differences were related to effects on plant growth...

PGR IV Increased Cotton Yield by Affecting Various Fruiting Parameters
By Muhammad Naveed Arshad on Apr 26, 2019

WCRC WCRC2

ABSTRACT The effect of the plant growth regulator PGR-IV on cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) was evaluated in field experiments in up to eight locations, for three years (1995-97) in Greece. Seedcotton yields were increased by up to 20 % in most locations, compared to the control. The mean yield increase in all locations and years was 4.9%. This was co...

Heat Tolerance of Cotton Genotypes Assessed by Electrolyte Leakage, Chlorophyll Fluorescence Analysis and Performance in the Field in Pakistan
By Muhammad Naveed Arshad on Apr 26, 2019

WCRC WCRC2

ABSTRACT Germination and emergence of 117 cotton accessions were tested in the laboratory at 43oC and 30oC. The absolute heat tolerance of detached leaves of the 117 accessions was tested by chlorophyll fluorescence analysis (CFA) and by electrolyte leakage tests. The heat tolerance of whole plants was examined in a large, modified growth chamber....

Glycinebetaine Treatment Improves Cotton Yields in Field Trials in Pakistan

ABSTRACT This study was designed to test the effectiveness of glycinebetaine (an osmoprotectant purified from sugar beet and applied as a spray of ‘Greenstim’) in improving the yields of cotton under normal cultivation conditions in the Punjab of Pakistan. Field trials were conducted in replicated small plots at two sites over two years to determi...

Exogenously-Applied Glycinebeyaine is Not Rapidly Re-Translocated in Cotton
By Muhammad Naveed Arshad on Apr 26, 2019

WCRC WCRC2

ABSTRACT The redistribution of methyl-14C-glycinebetaine was examined after local application to young cotton plants at first flowering. Labelled glycinebetaine in a solution containing Tween-20 (0.05%) was applied to the surface of young or old leaves of cotton (cv. CIM-443) using a syringe. In some cases a self-sealing plastic bag was used to ma...

ABSTRACT RyzUp is a gibberellic acid-based plant growth promoter for cotton. The objective of this study was to determine whether growth responses of cotton to RyzUp application depend on post-treatment environmental conditions defined by temperature and potential evapotranspiration. The experiments were conducted at the Texas A&M University A...

Utilization of Spectral Imaging to Detect N and K Sufficiency in Cotton
By Muhammad Naveed Arshad on Apr 25, 2019

WCRC WCRC2

ABSTRACT Light-interception by crops has been intensively studied since the early 1960s. Simple models of light interception for single plant, crop-rows, and for continuous canopy have been developed. More complex models, using crop geometry, have also been investigated and some of the studies tried to model plant competition. However, the majorit...
