Abstract:
The objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of five experimental lines (P73, P75, P76, P80, and P81) with two commercial varieties ('Pima S-6' and 'Pima S-79 of Pima cotton. All seven strains were grown in replicated strip tests at four locations across the Pima belt in 1994. While none of the experimental lines produced significantly more lint than the best Pima variety at any site, some of them possess traits that are valuable to Pima cotton breeders. P73 has long and strong fiber. P76 is a high yielding, early maturing line that produces long and strong fiber. P80's lint yields are similar to Pima S-7, but it is significantly earlier.
