Heterosis study for seed cotton yield and its yield attributing traits in hybrids of upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.)

Author(s):
D Shashibhushan and UG Patel
Abstract:
A study was made in upland cotton to assess the extent of heterosis over standard check for seed cotton yield and its related attributes traits at three locations viz., Surat, Bharuch and Hansot. The standard heterosis ranged from -23.47 to 21.45 per cent. The three hybrids viz., G (B) 20 x G.Cot.10, G (B) 20 x DHY-286-1 and LRK-516 x DHY-286-1 showed significant and positive standard heterosis, in which the cross G(B) 20 x G.Cot.10 showed maximum value of standard heterosis for seed cotton yield per plant and manifested heterotic effects for its contributing characters like number of monopodia per plant, number of sympodia per plant, number of bolls per plant, boll weight, and number of seeds per boll and seed index.
