The present research was carried out to determine and record genetic distance and variation among cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L) genotypes for yield traits in Kamashi district of benishangul-gumuz regional state for fourteen upland cotton genotypes. The genotypes were evaluated for ten traits in randomized complete block design with three replications. Data were collected on days of 50% flowering, days to 65%boll opening, plant height, Number of monopodial branches per plant, Number of sympodial branches per plant, Boll number per plant, Boll weight Seed cotton yield per hectare, Lint yield and Ginning out tern. The data were subjected to analysis of variance. Genotypes were varied significantly for most of the traits studied and there were wide range variation on mean values for most of the traits which indicated the presence of variability among the tested genotypes.
