Molecular Basis of Quantitative Genetics Revealed by Cloning and Analysis of 474 Genes Controlling Fiber Length in Cotton
Cotton (Gossypium spp.) is a leading textile crop in the world, generating an annual economic benefit of over hundred billion USD. However, few genes controlling fiber quality and yield traits have been cloned and characterized ...
Towards Stunt-Free Lonren Reniform Nematode Resistance by Dissection of an Alien R-Gene Chromosome Segment and Detection of Significant Fungal Interactions
Reniform (Rotylenchulus reniformis) nematodes cost US cotton growers over 130 million dollars per year. Genetic resistance of the wild African species Gossypium longicalyx to reniform nematodes was previously transferred ...
The effects of cotton blending on warehousing cost
(Texas Tech University, 1980-12)
Effects of harvest aid materials and timing on planting seed quality
(Texas Tech University, 2007-08)
The High Plains of Texas is a 22-county region that grows approximately 1.6 million hectares of upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) each year. In recent years, the cotton market has changed both domestically and overseas, ...
An evaluation of lint yield, fiber quality, and an economic analysis of upland cotton cultivars
ABSTRACT An Evaluation of Lint Yield, Fiber Quality, and an Economic Analysis of Upland Cotton Cultivars. By MATTHEW K. STROUD, B.S., Texas Tech University (Under the Direction of Thomas Thompson and Craig Bednarz) Water ...
Morphological and biochemical characterization of the cool temperature hindrance of early fiber elongation of cotton using ovules cultured in vitro as a model system
(Texas Tech University, 1993-12)
Cool temperatures limit cotton yield and fiber quality. The effect is especially severe in major temperate cotton-producing regions such as the Texas High Plains. Cotton (Gossypiwn hirsutum L. cv Acala SJ-1) ovules cultured ...
