Abstract

Abstract

Different night temperature regimes were maintained throughout the boll development period on field-grown cotton during th 1963, 1964, and 1965 seasons. Decreased night temperatures slowed both rate and amount of cellulose synthesis, which in turn resulted in underdeveloped fiber, characterized by poor physical and chemical properties. In general, ‘Paymaster’ variety appeared to be better adapted to cool nights than Acala variety.
