Abstract

Eight cotton hybrids consisting of six pre-release American cotton hybrids and two released hybrids NHH-390 and NHH-44 (Checks) were tested for general adaptability and stability for three years. The results revealed that the promising hybrids NDL HH-253 and NDL HH-255 were stable in performance under irrigation and may boost the cotton production in the scarce rainfall zone of Andhra Pradesh.
