Abstract

The newly developed variety CRIS-585 has been evolved through conventional breeding method, hybridization between CIM-496 and BH-162 at Central Cotton Research Institute Sakrand. The variety is significantly different as produced higher seed cotton yield in varietal trials as compared with other advance strains and standard check variety. The variety was tested in zonal varietal trial and national coordinated varietal trial at multi-locations of different agro-climatic conditions of Sindh and Pakistan. CRIS-585 possesses high GOT and longer staple length along with other fiber parameters. It is non Bt. variety tolerant to sucking insect pests and disease; the optimum sowing period of this variety is 15th April to 15th May. CRIS-585 has the potential to provide higher yield on 150 kg N ha-1 at 30 cm spacing and this variety does not need a very high input which is difficult to manage by a common grower and gave higher yield on 5 irrigations as compared the yield of standard variety. The variety features were presented in technical expert subcommittee and after that proposal was submitted and present in Sindh Seed Council. Keeping in view the performance and silent features of CRIS-585 it was approved and recommended for general cultivation in Sindh during the year 2020
