AbstractTwo investigations, one of the inheritance of stomatal regulation and its relation to heat tolerance and the other of seed gossypol content in Gossvpium barbadense, began yielding results in 1992. Mode of gene action conferring stomatal conductance varied with the parentage of crosses. Selective advance for high conductance appeared to be feasible in wide crosses, but limited in crosses of elite Pima strains. Variability for seed gossypol content in G. barbadense was surprisingly high. There was evidence of geographic and taxonomic structure to the variability observed. A conversion program to convert photoperiodic short-day flowering accession's of the G. barbadense germplasm collection to day neutrality continued.

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.
