Diallel analyses of upper 2.5% span length, micronaire, ⅛" gauge stele-meter strength, and 0" gauge stelometer strength were conducted on 10 selected varieties of upland cotton and the 45 possible F1 crosses among them using the procedure of Jinks and Hayman. A partial failure of the basic assumptions of the analysis was noted for length and micronaire. The assumptions were valid for ⅛" gauge stelometer and O" gauge stelometer.
