  • Abstract

Present study reveals that there is a large variation in anatomy of cotton genotypes, which will help in selecting genotypes for drought tolerance, sucking pest resistant, boll warm resistant, and lodging resistance. Genotypes having long and compactly arranged palisade tissue, high density of trichomes, thick cuticle, high density of vas­cular tissue offers drought resistance. High density of trichomes offers sucking pest resistance. Thick stem offers lodging resistance under flooding condition.      

Keywords :   Cotton, anatomy, palisade tissue, trichome, drought, cuticle
