Twelve advanced upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.)
experimental lines and two check varieties were evaluated for ten
phonological and agronomic traits
at Kamashi, Benishangul-Gumuz Regional
State during the 2017/18 main cropping season
. The objective of the study was to assess
performance of the experimental cotton varieties for seed cotton and lint
yield. The v
arieties differed significantly for most of the traits with wide
ranging mean values for most of the characters thus indicating the existence
of variations among the tested lines and for possibility of immediate
commercial utilization and for improvements in future cotton breeding
programs
.
