Two new high yielding and pest resistant cotton seed varieties, which will also deliver better ginning output, are ready for release in the central zone of India.

Hisar-based Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University (HAU) developed these two seed varieties, said a press release.

The Central Variety Identification Release Committee identified these varieties - H1316 and H1353, which are American cotton varieties for release in states of Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat.

According to the press release, cotton varieties are released for cultivation in the zone in which these have been developed, but for the first time, cotton varieties developed in one zone have been released in another zone of the country.

The new varieties are suitable for cultivation in irrigated as well as rain-fed conditions and the potential yield of these varieties is 2,926 kg/ha and 2,825 kg/ha.

In coordinated trials, variety H1316 gave mean-seed cotton yield of 1,988 kg/ha in the Central Zone against 1,524 kg/ha of zonal check variety LRA5166 and 1,742 kg/ha of local check variety.

On the other hand, H1353 recorded a mean-seed cotton yield of 1,365 kg/ha against 1,010 kg/ha of zonal check LRA 5166 and 1,142 kg/ha of local check variety.
