The prospect of Fj cotton hybrids offers improved seedling vigor, disease tolerance and yield for the major crop of the Texas High Plains while raising concern about additional fiber property variability. This study attempts to measure whether or not more fiber variability is introduced in the Fg generation than is naturally present in a pure line cultivar or F^ hybrid.
