Cotton is a major fiber product and an important source for edible oil in the world. Cotton productivity is limited by different abiotic and biotic factors such as drought stress. Moreover, long time cultivation practice and artificial selection has led to narrow genetic variability in cotton. Cotton cultivars tolerating drought stress are desirable for arid region cultivation. Different approaches have been used to study drought stress tolerance including conventional plant breeding and… CONTINUE READING
