AbstractAn isozyme study of the diversity and structure of Goss_vpium nii revealed levels of genetic variation within the species which were high for an island endemic. Infraspecific diversity of G. darwinii was observed among populations of the various Galapagos Islands. Evidence of introgression of other Gossypium species into darwinii was noted. An investigation into the effects of altered Pima (G. barbadense) fiber genotypes on interspecific hybrid fiber characteristics indicated that parent genotype could significantly affect hybrid fiber length, strength, uniformity, and micronaire. However, hybrid heterosis for fiber length and micronaire greatly exceeded the influence of parent genotype. Hybrid fiber characteristics were unique, fitting within neither the extra -long staple nor long staple classifications. A conversion program to convert photoperiodic short-day accessions of a Gossvpium barbadense germplasm collection to day neutrality continues.

Lint Yield of Several Cotton Varieties Planted on 5 Dates at 3 Locations in Arizona in 1986Kittock, D. L.; Hofmann, W. C. (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 1987-03)There were some wide variations in cotton variety performance at five planting dates among locations and years. However, on an average, DP 90 and DP 77 performed best when planted between 28 March and 24 April. Stoneville 506 and DP 50 averaged best for May plantings and DP 20, Stoneville 112, and DP 50 averaged best for early June plantings.
