Resistance to the twospotted spider mite in certain Gossypium hirsutum races, Gossypium species, and glanded-glandless counterpart cottons

Resistance to the twospotted spider mite in certain Gossypium hirsutum races, Gossypium species, and glanded-glandless counterpart cottons

In greenhouse tests in Mississippi, the resistance of 24 species of Gossypium, 21 races of Gossypium hirsutum, and 12 glanded and glandless pairs and 4 high-gossypol breeding lines of Gossypium varieties to Tetranychus urticae Koch was evaluated by the technique of M.F. Schuster & others (cf. preceding abstract). The most resistant species were found to be G. barbadense, G. australe and G. lobatum.

Mergeai, G., 1992: New perspectives concerning the methodology to be used for introgression of the glanded-plant and glandless-seed character in cultivated cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.). The presence of gossypol in the seed is undesirable as it is highly toxic to monogastric animals. The wild Australian diploid species G. sturtianum and G. australe produce gossypol-free seeds, although all their other organs contain it. These 2 sp...
