Season-Long Effects of Chilling Treatments Applied to Germinating Cottonseed
- M. N. Christiansen and
- R. O. Thomas2
Field growth response of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) to chilling during germination was investigated by laboratory application of controlled dosages of cold, followed by germination in sterile soil and subsequent field culture to maturity. Chilling during germination reduced plant height, delayed fruiting, and reduced fiber quality in a direct relation to the length of exposure to cold.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
