Cotton for High Fiber Strength

H. B. Cooper


My cotton breeding career started at New Mexico State University in 1960. My work has always been done under conditions of voluntary one-variety districts, New Mexico and Texas (1960 - 1964), the one-variety district by law in the San Joaquin Valley of California (1964 - 1978), and the San Joaquin Valley one quality district (1979 to present). Growers and Mills have always been involved in variety decisions in these areas. The growers desiring improved yields and quality, and the mills desiring improved fiber and spinning properties.
