Glandless cotton can be grown for cottonseed free of toxic gossypol to be used as food and feed for non-ruminant animals. However, one of the most important limiting factors preventing its commercial production is its higher insect damage than conventional glanded cotton. Thrips is the one of the most important insect pests in the early growing season that(More)
There is a renewed interest in research and use of glandless (free of gossypol) Upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) that can produce edible seeds for human food and animal feed. However, there was a lack of information on yield potential of existing glandless germplasm since intermittent breeding activities for glandless cotton were stopped in the U.S.(More)
Several criteria are used for determining the acceptability of whole cottonseed (WCS) for crushing including concentrations of moisture, oil, free fatty acids in the oil (FFA), and ammonia. Whole cottonseed that does not meet the minimum standard is typically sold as a feed ingredient. When tropical storms delay cotton harvest and the moisture remain(More)
