GENETICS OF CERTAIN BOLL CHARACTERS IN COTTON (GOSSYPIUM HIRSUTUM L.)

Published on

Gene effects and type of epistasis were studied for nine boll characters in two crosses of
cotton. The study revealed that additive effects were operative for most of the characters
under study. Additive Xadditive and additive x dominance effects were significant for boll
weight, seedslboll and seeds/lock in cross EC X K 32 and for lint index in the cross KE X
H 77. Early generation selection and intermating is suggested for the improvement of
component characters.
