Abstract

The cotton variety NDLH 2035-5 is a Gossypium hirsutum variety identified for both central and south zone states of India in rainfed situations, released by Acharya N.G. Ranga Agricultural University, Andhra Pradesh during 2022. This variety was developed at the Regional Agricultural Research Station, Nandyal through the pedigree method by crossing the parents of NDLH – 1905 × MCU 5. This variety recorded a mean seed cotton yield of 1436 kg/ha and 1471 kg/ha as against 1294 kg/ha and 1291 kg/ha of the Zonal check variety NH-615 in Central and Sahana in the south zone, respectively under rainfed conditions. The percentage increase in seed cotton yield was 11.0 per cent and 14.0 per cent at the central and south zones, respectively. The variety has a yield potential of 2219 kg/ha in the Dharwad centre and of 2719 kg/ha in the Nagpur centre as has been recorded during 2018-19. The variety has recorded an Upper Half Mean Length (UHML) of 29.6 mm, micronaire of 4.0 µg/inch and bundle strength of 27.6 g/tex in HVI mode. The variety recorded a mean boll weight of 4.4 g/boll, and is superior to local check and zonal check. NDLH 2035-5 combines high yield potential, big boll size and basic tolerance to pests and diseases. The entry NDLH 2035-5 identified for release as Nandyal Cotton - 25 by Central Variety Identification Committee during 2022 and the farmers will be highly benefitted by cultivating this variety in non-bt segment.
