Adaptation of Selected Cotton Strains to a Narrow Row Environment

Thomas D. Brooks, T.P. Wallace


No Article Preliminary results indicated significant differences among genotypes for final mapping, yield, and fiber characteristics. Differences due to row spacing were observed for lint yield. Significant genotype x spacing interactions were observed for yield, average number of vegetative branches, nodes to first sympodial branch, and boll position in the final mapping. Analysis of the data indicated that: (1) response to selection for adaptation to narrow rows was observed, (2) further selection under a narrow row environment should continue.
