Evaluation of high yielding candidate cotton genotypes tested in National Coordinated Varietal Trial at different locations of Sindh and Balochistan

Abstract


The research was conducted during the two consecutive years 2018 and 2019; twenty eight (28) advance cotton strains were tested in national coordinated varietal trials (NCVT) at seven locations of Sindh and Balochistan. The results revealed highly significant difference among the varieties during both the years. On the basis of two years average performance only two candidate strains GH-Uhad and NIAB-135 showed their stability in yield performance during both the years. Therefore, it is recommended that top two high yielding varieties (GH-Uhad and NIAB-135) with stability in performance must be approved by the provincial seed council of Sindh and Balochistan to revive the cotton production of the provinces as well as national economy and not to waste/garbage this high yielding stuff and also suggested to cotton breeders utilization in hybridization/breeding program to evolve high yield variety.
