Optimum organization of the cotton ginning industry in the Texas Southern High Plains
(Texas Tech University, 1997-05)
The dynamic nature of technology and cost adjustments in the Texas Southern High Plains cotton ginning mdustry has made the issue of organizational structure important to farmers, gin managers, and mdustry professionals. ...
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 ...
Relative fiber uniformity between parent, first filial and second filial generations in cotton, Gossypium Hirsutum L.
(Texas Tech University, 1989-05)
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 ...
The effect of brassinolide on cotton fiber development
(Texas Tech University, 1996-05)
Brassinosteroids may represent a sixth class of endogenous plant hormones whose general effect is the stimulation of cell division and elongation in young vegetative tissues. These steroidal lactone compounds act synergistically ...
Preemergence/postemergence pyrithiobac combinations control red morningglory and devil's-claw in cotton
(Texas Tech University, 1999-08)
Field experiments in 1997 and 1998 evaluated cotton weed control and yield comparing a herbicide program utilizing sequential preemergence (PRE) and postemergence (POST) pyrithiobac combinations to standard PRE treatments ...
