Research Project: The Development of Breeding Populations in Cotton Through Random Mating

Location: Genetics and Sustainable Agriculture Research Unit

Project Number: 6064-21000-012-32
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Jan 01, 2010
End Date: Dec 31, 2010

Linkage disequilibrium study on parents and C5 cycles of random mating using molecular markers. Marker data on parental lines have been completed. Development of recombinant inbred lines from half-sib families in the random mating.

Winter nursery will be utilized to increase seed of RIL to produce about one pound of selfed seed from each half-sib family. Seed will be planted for agronomic and fiber performance in a field environment.
