Özet

This study was carried out to determine direct and indirect effects of some characters (single leaf area, leaf SPAD value, number of nods, number of sympodial branches, number of monopodial branches, single boll weight, number of bolls) on seed cotton yield. The experiment was carried out with four cotton varieties, two of which okra-leaf (Adana 98, Siokra 1/4) and two of which normal-leaf (Teks and Stoneville 453) cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) and was conducted the randomized block design with 4 replications. In order to increase seed cotton yield in the studies of breeding program and selection orderly leaf SPAD value, number of sympodial branches, single boll weight, number of monopodial branches and number of bolls characters determined that must be high. Results showed that in order to increase seed cotton yield in the studies of breeding program and selection the highness of leaf SPAD value, number of sympodial branches, single boll weight, number of monopodial branches and number of bolls characters should be considered important.
