Dry Matter Distribution and Yield of Normal- and Okra-Leaf Cotton Genotypes Released Between 1975 and 1997

J.J. Heitholt and W.R. Meredith, Jr.


The genetic advances in yield of normal-leaf cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) have been attributed to increases in harvest index, lint percentage, and photosynthesis. However, yield component data explaining yield differences among okra-leaf types is unavailable. The objectives of this study were to characterize the yield and yield components of selected normal- and okra-leaf types differing in yield.
