Abstract:

Cotton (Gossypium spp. L.) has been cultivated in tropical and sub-tropical climates of the world. Although the wild species are often woody perennials, ranging from shrubs to trees, the domesticated species are generally cultivated as herbaceous row crops or, in a few areas of the world by ratooning. In addition to being the world’s most important textile fiber crop, cotton is the world’s second-most important oil seed crop after Soybean. The level of genetic diversity of crop species is an essential element of sustainable crop production in agriculture, including cotton. The genetic diversity of Gossypium species is exclusively wide, encompassing wide geographic and ecological niches.

Keywords: Tropics, Genome, Africanum, upland cotton.
