Private Cotton Breeding in the Southeast

Henry W. Webb


Private cotton breeding in the southeast began in 1901 when Mr. D. R. Coker of Hartsville, South Carolina, made 30 individual plant selections, planting these in plant to row progenies in 1902. This coincides with the rediscovery of the Mendelian laws of inheritance and was the first breeding program based on these scientific principles.
