Cotton breeding progress stagnation, changing production conditions, and continued high fiber quality demands are challenging the cotton industry in Burkina Faso. The F1 populations developed by half diallel crosses between germplasm from Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Burkina Faso were evaluated for several agronomic traits. The aim was to identi...
Article
Organic cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) production in the United States is steadily growing because of increased consumer demand, market premium prices, and regulatory shifts. As organic production expands in the United States, adventitious presence of genetically engineered (GE) traits caused by either pollen‐ or seed‐mediated gene flow from nonorg...
Article
Enhancing genetic diversity to breed cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) for water‐limited production in the Texas High Plains is one objective of the Texas A&M AgriLife Research breeding program in Lubbock. CA 4008 (Reg. no. GP‐1099, PI 698821) was derived from TX 307 (PI 165390) and 07‐A‐05, an unreleased breeding line. TX 307, wild material of specie...
Article
Raw fiber properties are important in determining the value of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.). They determine the type and quality of cotton products that can be produced, making them important to textile processors and farmers, and are critical traits of interest for breeders. Improvement of fiber quality is an established objective for the Texas...
Article
Full-text available
Developing cotton fibers with improved tensile properties is important because fiber breakage during processing from field to yarn can impart imperfections in the finished product by degrading fiber quality. Cotton fiber strength is often the focus of germplasm development while the degree of fiber elongation before rupture under load has been negl...
Article
Increasing demands for irrigation and declining water availability are becoming critical issues in the Texas High Plains, the primary cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) growing area of the United States. Developing breeding lines suitable for water‐limited production is an important objective of the Texas A&M AgriLife Research cotton breeding program i...
Article
Fiber quality is important to the textile industry because it directly relates to processing performance, productivity and yarn quality. For marketing purposes, the fiber quality of U.S. cotton is determined by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) classing offices using High Volume Instrument (HVI). HVI measures fiber length, length u...
Chapter
Genetic improvement of upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) fiber quality is essential to meet demands of textile manufacturers and the international market while also increasing competitiveness with synthetic fibers. In this chapter, the current state of cotton fiber improvement through advances in breeding and biotechnology is described. In an e...
Article
Market value and competitiveness of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) fibers are dependent on fiber quality and how it relates to the quality of end products such as yarn. Improving multiple fiber properties that affect spinning performance and yarn quality is a fundamental objective of the Texas A and M AgriLife Research cotton breeding program in Lu...
Article
Verticillium wilt (caused by Verticillium dahliae Kleb.) is a devastating global disease and an emerging production issue in the primary cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) region of the United States, the Texas High Plains. Lines with partial resistance generally are not suited to this region on the basis of later crop maturity and boll type. A major o...
Article
For the last two decades, cotton breeders have used HVI (High Volume Instrument) as their primary and often sole source of fiber quality data when making plant selections. Fiber data generated by Advanced Fiber Information System technology is also now available to plant breeders, and provides additional information on length characteristics and fi...

ABSTRACT For the last two decades, cotton breeders have used High Volume Instrument (HVI) as their primary and often sole source of fiber quality data when making plant selections. Fiber data generated by Advanced Fiber Information System (AFIS) technology is also now available to plant breeders, and provides additional information on length charac...
Article
Full-text available
The purpose of this selection study is to compare the use two selection methods, one using HVI data only and one using HVI plus AFIS data. The study begins with fifteen intraspecific F2 populations that will undergo a series of selections through the F4 generation. Fiber data from the second year of the study are presented and progress of the two s...
