Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out during 2012-13 at ARS, Siruguppa with an objective of determine the extent of commercial Heterosis for fiber quality traits in F1 hybrids obtained by crossing 10 parents in half dialle fashion. Several hybrid combinations showed very good per se performance for all the traits under study and commercial Heterosis for 2.5% span length. These lines can sever as a potential donor for genetic improvement of cotton after further evaluation, fixation and selection.
