Abstract:

One of the key natural fiber of the world is Cotton (Gossypium spp.), a member of Malvaceae family. Fusarium wilt (FW) is majorly caused by the Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. vasinfectum (FOV) which is a soil-borne fungus that leads to Verticillium Wilt. It is one of the most serious diseases in cotton, has a deterioting influence on crop's production and quality. Helicoverpa armigera, known as the cotton bollworm, has been controlled over the last few years, Verticillium Wilt (VW) has become a key restriction in production of cotton. DNA molecular markers are widely used for establishing genetic and physical genome maps, differentiating individuals, investigating genetic relatedness, and studying genome organisation of a large population with accuracy. The wilt had become a matter of research in cotton-resistance hereditary qualities, rearing and plant pathology. This work is consists of a literature review that is eventually providing a complete union of research progress in plant breeding, hereditary qualities and molecular mapping of the cotton genome with molecular markers for identification of fusarium wilt. Enrolment of Fusarium wilt resistant cultivars has demonstrated to be the most economically worthy method to control the disease. It is expected that new plant breeding methods and new varieties/hybrids resistant to Verticillium wilt will be developed in no time which can combat Fusarium Wilt.
