The present study was conducted to evaluate and select appropriate performance of inbreed lines
in form of yield and its components for development of high yield hybrid genotypes at Werer
Agricultural Research Center (WARC). Thirty-four advanced lines and two checks (Deltapine-90
and Stam 59A) were tested in two replications of the (6x6) alpha-lattice design during the 2015
growing season (June-December). The genotypes manifested very highly significant differences
(p≤0.001) for boll weight, ginning out turn (%) and lint yield, highly significant differences (p≤0.01)
for plant height and seed cotton yield and significant differences (p≤0.05) for bolls per plant.
Bigger bolls, higher seed cotton yield and more lint yield were obtained from advanced lines;

positively correlated with seed cotton yield and lint yield. Seed cotton yield was significantly and
positively correlated with lint yield. It is concluded that advanced lines from the crosses Stam 59

genotypes for seed cotton yield and lint yield. Therefore, these genotypes should be advanced

cotton yield.

Cotton is an important fiber crop and plays a vital role as a 2.5% of the world's arable land. China is the world's largest
cash crop in commerce of many countries such as USA, producer of cotton, but most of this is used domestically.
