The objective of this study was to determine the relationship between yield fiber length and other fiber related traits m advanced cotton strains derived from a cotton breeding program The experiments were conducted in the Southeastern Anatolia Agricultural Research Institutes experimental airs according to randomized complete block design (RCBD) with four replications during 2007 and 2008 cotton growing season In the study 9 advanced cotton strains and 2 check varieties ( GW Teks and Stoneville 468) were used as plant materials The results of the statistical analysis indicated that the advanced cotton strains had significant differences m terms of the investigated characteristics when compared to the check varieties The highest seed cotton yield (4087 0 kg ha I) and fiber yield (1632 2 kg ha (1)) were obtained from SET 34 cotton strain which had acceptable fiber quality properties However the highest fiber length (32 33 mm) was obtained from ERA 85 The correlation analysis indicated that there were significant negative correlations between fiber length and seed cotton yield lint yield and ginning percentage while there were positive and significant correlations between fiber length and fiber strength
