Agronomic and economic analysis of guar (Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba L.) in comparison to drought tolerant crops adapted to the Texas High Plains
Cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) has long been the most profitable crop on the Texas High Plains, but with depleting Ogallala Aquifer levels, water-efficient, alternative crops have never had a stronger presence. Proceeding ...
Overexpression and interactions of Arabidopsis thaliana RAV1 (Related to Abscisic Acid Insensitive 3/ Viviparous 1), RAV2, RAV2-Like and ABI5 in transgenic cotton (Gossypium hirsutum): Effects on drought avoidance and fiber quality
Plants have evolved complex overlapping response pathways for stresses such as drought, salt, cold, as well as hormonal cues such as abscisic acid (ABA). In this study, reverse genetics (knockout mutants) and overexpression ...
Production response of cotton in India, Pakistan, and Australia
(Texas Tech University, 2002-05)
The problematic situation confronted by the cotton sector during recent years and the increasing level of globalization has led to a greater need for understanding production and marketing systems of countries other than ...
Evaluation of yield and fiber trait responses across irrigation treatments
The main objective of this study is to evaluate yield and fiber quality of a given set of genotypes across varying irrigation levels. The stability of both yield and fiber quality as it is affected by water availability ...
Methodology for the detection and quantification of the white specks phenomenon in cotton yarn
(Texas Tech University, 2001-05)
An accepted reference test for accurately quantifying white speck count per unit of dyed yarn length or per unit of area of cloth does not exist.
Functional characteristics of genes involved in brassinosteroid signaling in cotton
(Texas Tech University, 2003-12)
Cotton fibers are highly elongated single celled trichomes that grow from the seed integument. Elongation of fiber cells begins almost after ovule fertilization and continues for approximately 20 days. In this study, I ...
Relative contribution of insect and plant sugars to cotton fiber stickiness
(Texas Tech University, 2003-05)
Effects of multiple yield environments on relative cotton maturity
Quantifying maturity in cotton cultivars can be vital in cotton production for a variety of reasons. Planting date, variety, and irrigation techniques for a specific location or environment can be better selected when ...
Oil sorption behavior of fibrous substrates
Oil spills such as the Deepwater Horizon Gulf of Mexico incident of 2010 are a threat to the ecosystem. In addition to the pollution caused due to the oil, synthetic sorbents are a hazard to the environment. Synthetic ...
Mechanism of drought tolerance in cotton-response of cotton cultivars to irrigation in the Texas High Plains
Mechanism of Drought Tolerance in Cotton- Response of Cotton cultivars to Irrigation in the Texas High Plains (2011) Esha Poudel Chair of Advisory Committee: Dr. T.L.Thompson Cotton is the most profitable crop produced ...
