Special Session

Special Session in the 2nd Int'l Conference on Pesticide, Fertilizer and Seed (PFS 2016)

Topic: Cotton variety purity

Session introduction: Cotton is an important textile and oil crop throughout the world. Upland cotton (G. hirsutum) is widely cultivated, and planted in more than 70 countries, contributing to over 95% of the total cotton yield worldwide. High quality-seeds production and distribution is the corner stone for agriculture economy. Seed carry the genetic traits which are incorporated through hybridization and selection for the development of a cultivar having high yield potential and other economic traits. The genetic purity of seeds means percentage of contamination by seeds or genetic material of other species or varieties. Practically it is impossible that the seed of a variety is 100% pure as mixing may occur during planting, harvesting, ginning and processing of seed for storage. Seed standards are established by the seed certification department with the consultation of breeders before commercialization of the variety. These measures include mode of pollination of the crop (autogamous or allogamous), the type of variety (open variety, hybrid) and market demand of final product quality.

Cotton variety purity is of immense importance for the breeders; plant breeders attract great worldwide attention. Breeders should keep in mind the following points for variety development;

The genetic purity of the cottonseed is of high value for getting desired output from grower crop value, processor and consumer perspectives. Seed certification plays a pivotal role for maintaining purity of the genotype with the collaboration of breeder.
