Cotton Scenario in India

  title={Cotton Scenario in India},
  author={A. Basu and S. Narayanan},
Comparison of methods for evaluating the suitability of Vertisols for Gossypium hirsutum (Bt cotton) in two contrasting agro-ecological regions
The soils of SHM region were moderately suitable for cotton cultivation with soil moisture as the major limiting factor, whereas the soils of SAD region are marginally suitable due to high exchangeable sodium percentage and poor hydraulic conductivity. Expand
Effect of Site Specific Nutrient Management on the Performance of Bt Cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) and Nutrient Dynamics
This paper presents a large number of examples of honey bees found in the wild in the southern Indian state of Karnataka during the period of June-July of 1991 to December of 1991. Expand
Nutrient Availability in Bt Cotton by using Drip Fertigation Under Different Phosphorous Sources
Cotton occupies sizeable area in India including Maharashtra which is progressively increasing with creation of irrigation amenities. Farmers adopting furrow irrigation causes percolation, nutrientExpand
Detoxifying enzyme studies on cotton leafhopper, Amrasca biguttula biguttula (Ishida), resistance to neonicotinoid insecticides in field populations in Karnataka, India
It is suggested that the higher activity of the detoxifying enzyme in the resistance population of cotton leafhopper apparently has a significant role in endowing resistance to neonicotinoid groups of insecticides. Expand
Bt Cotton in India
Bt cotton provides in built protection to cotton against lepidopteron pests (Helicoverpa), therefore production of cotton has been increased and socio-economic status of farmers has improved and the control provided by Bt cottons approaches immunity. Expand
Drip Fertigation Program on Growth, Crop Productivity, Water, and Fertilizer-Use Efficiency of Bt Cotton in Semi-arid Tropical Region of India
A field experiment was conducted to assess the effects of drip fertigation with biofertilizers on growth, yield, water, and fertilizer-use efficiency of Bt cotton. The treatments were comprised ofExpand
Drip fertigation effects on yield, nutrient uptake and soil fertility of Bt Cotton in semi arid tropics
Biofertigation significantly increased seed cotton yield and a progressive increase in seed yield was noticed with increasing levels of NPK fertilizer application, which confirmed the significance of drip fertigation with biofertilizers. Expand
Radiation and chemical mutagen induced somaclonal variations through in vitro organogenesis of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.)
The results of the present study revealed the influence of lower doses/concentrations of mutagenic treatments on in vitro and ex vitro growth of cotton plantlets and their significant improvement in agronomical characters which needs further imperative stability analysis. Expand
Study on Marketing of Cotton in Khargone District of Madhya Pradesh; India
The study was carried out to estimate the price spread and marketing efficiency in the marketing of cotton in different channels by using different tools such as price spread, marketing costs,Expand
