Abstract: The improved Gossypium arboreum cultivars, along with the traditionally grown Gossypium arboreum and Gossypium hirsutum cultivars, have been collected and evaluated comprehensively for fibre quality parameters (physical, morphological and structural). The comparative analysis of the data clearly establishes the parity between improved G. arboreum and traditionally grown G. hirsutum strains. A noticeable qualitative improvement with respect to most of the parameters evaluated, has been observed in comparison to the conventionally cultivated G. arboreum strain RG-8. In addition to that, the improved G. arboreum cultivars seem to retain the inherent trait of the species of producing highly mature fibre.
