The objective of this study was to determine genotype X environment (GE) interaction and stability of cotton genotypes, and effect of different environments on seed cotton yield to understand its adaptation to varying environments. Fourteen cotton genotypes were evaluated at four locations across Aegean region of Turkey in 1997 and 1998. Genotypes were tested by two stability parameters as linear regression coefficient (b) and deviations from regression (S2d). Significant differences were observed for the mean yields in the 8 environments. Mean seed cotton yield ranged from 4.58 to 5.80 t ha(-1). Genotypes showed significant interaction with environments. Regression coefficients ranged from 0.23 to 1.46, and deviations from regression were significant for only four genotypes. It was concluded that three high yielding cotton genotypes SG-1001, SG-125 and DLP-5409 were found to be stable genotypes.

    ABSTRACT: Cotton, which is also known as 'white gold', is an important crop in many developing countries. The crop yield is dependent on the environment in which it is grown. One of the major challenges for cultivar recommendation is the genotype x environment interaction when the performance ranking of genotypes over environments is not constant. The identification of cultivars with high adaptability and stability to the growing conditions is an option to deal with this fact. The objective of the present study was to assess the yield stability and adaptability of commercial cotton cultivars (Gossypium hirsutum L. race latifolium H.) in Mozambique. The experiments were set up over three years in Namialo, Montepuez and Morrumbala, in a total of seven environments. Plots were established in a randomized complete block design with four replications of nine treatments. The stability and adaptability were assessed using methodologies by Annicchiarico and Toler and Burrows. The joint analysis of variance showed that there were high environmental variation and high effect of cultivar x environment interaction. The cultivars ISA 205, STAM 42 and IRMA 12-43 showed greater phenotypic stability for cottonseed yield, according to the Annicchiarico method. Regarding the Toler and Burrows methodology, the cultivar STAM 42 presented specific adaptation to low quality environments, while the cultivar CA 324 presented specific adaptation to high quality environments.

    ABSTRACT: Legacy of seed cotton yield and other quantitative traits is highly persuaded by environmental aspects, therefore, phenotypic response of a genotype is ascertained by genetic and environmental factors upon it, although occurrence of a third effect, of no less importance i.e. genotype-by-environment interaction (GEI). Studies were conducted in 2010 and 2011 evaluating G × E interactions and correlation in upland cotton using randomized complete block design at the University of Agriculture, Peshawar, Pakistan. The GEI was characterized using eight upland cotton cultivars viz., SLH- 284, CIM-446, CIM-473, CIM-496, CIM-499, CIM-506, CIM-544 and CIM-707. Significant (p≤0.01) mean squares for genotypes, environments and G × E interactions revealed genetic variability among cotton genotypes as well as environments inconsistency. The contribution to the total sums of squares, regardless of trait, revealed that genotypes and genotype × environment play principal role followed by environments, while replications (experimental error) share was minimal. The environment accounts for 61.86%, 26.99% and 18.64% of total variation for bolls plant-1, seed cotton yield and sympodia plant-1, respectively, considering the larger effects of environment in combination with genotypes on plant growth and morphology. Seed cotton yield has significant (p≤0.01) positive correlation with boll number, and positive with morphological traits. Based on two-year studies, CIM-496 exhibited the best performance followed by CIM-554 and SLH-284 for improvement in seed cotton and lint yields.
