Studies on Induced Variability in Egyptian Cotton

Mohamed A.A. Raafat


The present investigation was undertaken to study the genetic behaviour of some economic characters in two intervaroetial Egyptian cotton (Gossypium barbadense L.) crosses, namely Giza 80 x 5904 E (cross I) and Giza 45 x 5904 E (cross II). Six populations, namely P1, F1, F2, BC1, BC2 and P2 for each cross were studied for estimating genetic variance, stability, heritablity and expected genetic advance upon selection.
