Population development, Selection, and Evaluation for Heat Stress and Study of Seed Coat Fragments


The primary objective ofthis research is to identify/develop broadly adapted Acala and Upland improved cotton germplasm with potential heat stress tolerance, better fiber quality, and lint yield, broadening the genetic base of cotton. A second objective is to
investigate cotton seed coat fragment production and its genetics under different environments.

Cotton is routinely grown in the bot, in’igated areas of the far Westem U.S., and these extended periods of high temperature can reduce cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L. and G. barbadense) lint yield, even…
