Genetic contributions to yield in cotton



Genetic contributions to yield in cotton



Genetic improvement of field crops: 321-360



This survey of the subject is presented under the following headings: introduction; early cotton development; cotton development in the United States; cotton development in other countries; development of extra-long staple cottons; early measures of cotton quality; cotton breeding (pedigree selection; backcrossing; modified intermating); importance of fibre quality; simultaneous improvement of yield and fibre strength in cotton; Upland cotton yields in the United States; estimating genetic and environmental components of yield (regression of adjusted yields on years of testing; regression of yield due to environment; regression of yield due to genetic causes; obsolete versus modern cultivars; obsolete versus current Pee Dee germplasm lines); yield components responsible for increased lint production; other factors influencing genetic yield improvement; and conclusion.
