Abstract

An experiment was conducted to investigate the impact of different levels of nitrogen on phonological parameters of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) cultivars under different climatic conditions of Punjab (Pakistan) (College of Agriculture, University of Sargodha, Regional Agriculture Research Institute Bahawalpur and Adaptive Research Farm Dera Ghazi Khan) during the year 2016. These different environments have resulted in the adoption of the same crop management practices and cultivars comprising both conventional and non-conventional varieties (MNH-786 non –Bt and FH-142 and FH-Lalazar Bt) with different doses of nitrogen fertilizer viz. 0, 60, 120, 180, 240 and 300 kg nitrogen per hectare. Results of the experiment showed that among different levels of nitrogen minimum number of days to bud initiation(39.19 days) in Dara Ghazi Khan, flowering ( 50.66 days) in Dara Ghazi Khan, boll opening (99.44 days) Dara Ghazi Khan and boll maturation (108.94 days) in Bahawalpur location was recorded where we applied no dose of nitrogen (0 kg ha-1). While among different varieties the minimum number of days to bud initiation (35.18 days) in Sargodha location by non-BT MNH-786, day to flowering (53.06 days) in Dara Ghazi Khan by non-BT MNH786, day to boll opening (105.19 days) in Dara Ghazi Khan by BT variety FH Lalazar and boll maturation (116.49 days) in Bahawalpur location by cotton cultivar FH 142. It concluded that no application of nitrogen to cotton cultivars under Dera Ghazi Khan location result in maximum phonological parameters of cotton.
