The eight important traits of cotton such as 1st sympodial
node number, sympodial
branches/plant, boll weight, bolls/plant, lint%, micronaire, fibre length, and seed cotton yield/plant were studied.
abyssinica seedlings at nursery reported that its height ranges from 40 to 50 cm , while the RCD of sympodial
Bamboo seedlings is above 0.5 cm [24, 25].
Fiber characteristics and papermaking feasibility of major sympodial
bamboos in Xishuangbanna.
While number of sympodial
and monopodial branches were counted on 10 randomly selected plants from each replication.
Mean squares for specific combining ability were highly significant (Pless than 0.01) for plant height, sympodial
branches plant-1, bolls plant-1, boll weight, lint index and yield of seedcotton plant-1 and fiber strength.
At the early stages of individual development, monopodial growth of the leading shoot can be observed, which is changed by sympodial
one in the juvenile or immature ontogenetic state.
Nitrogen 100kg [ha.sup.-1] produced more seed cotton yield due to more number of monopodial branches (where from vegetative parts develops) and sympodial
branches (where from reproductive parts develops), bolls [plant.sup.-1], average boll weight and 100 cotton seed weight.
Those of the sympodial
axis are different from those of the monopodial axis.
There exists the genetic potential for improving the no of bolls per plant, no of leaves per plant and sympodial
While the former is a monopodial bamboo with leptomorph rhizome, the latter is a sympodial
bamboo with pachymorph rhizome.
