Selection for Glandless Seeded Cotton Plants1

  1. Scott C. McMichael2

Abstract

Abstract

I have presented methods helpful in identifying the glandless seeded character (gl2 gl2 gl3 gl3) in both the seedling and vegetative stages of the cotton plant, Gossypium hirsutum L. The stem (or hypocotyl) were found helpful in preliminary screening. The preliminary screening recovers both glandless genes in heterozygous or homozygous condition. The stipule was found to play a major role in identification of homozygous glandless seeded plants. Final proof of the homozygous genotype is based on a progeny test from self-pollinatled seed.
