Cotton is king of fibre crops and has economic importance worldwide and new cultivars have to be released continuously to meet the demanding needs of economic market. To meet our requirement broad genetic base is needed which is limited due to continuous usage of common parents for crossing. So the germplasm, advanced breeding lines are to be characterised for variable characters. DUS characters listed by PPV FRA, New Delhi were used for this purpose. The field studies were carried out during kharif 2017-18 at RARS, Lam. In descriptors leaf colour, hairiness, leaf appearance, leaf nectarines, leaf shape, stem hairiness, bract type, flower petal spot, flower anther colour filamentation, boll bearing habit, boll colour and boll opening variation is absent. Eight descriptors i.e. leaf petiole pigmentation, stem petiole pigmentation, flower petal colour, stigma position, pollen colour, boll shape, boll surface and boll tip had shown variation.

Keywords: Pigmentation, stem petiole pigmentation, flower petal colour, stigma position, pollen colour
