Abstract: The present research was intended to find out phenotypic and genotypic correlation analysis between plant heights, number of sympodial branches plant-1, number of bolls plant-1, Seed cotton yield (kg ha-1), ginning out turn (GOT), staple length, seed index, boll weight and micronaire value of eight cultivars. The research was conducted at the experimental area of Central Cotton Research Institute Sakrand according to randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications and eight varieties (CRIS-642, CRIS-644, CRIS-646, CRIS-647, CRIS-648, CRIS-650, CRIS-652 and CRIS-656) of upland cotton during crop year 2014-15. The consequences of statistically analysis indicated that genotypes differ highly significant (p<0.01) for plant height, number of bolls plant-1 and Seed cotton yield (kg ha-1), whereas number of sympodial branches plant-1, GOT, staple length, seed index, boll weight and micronaire value were significant at (p<0.05). Variety CRIS-648 produced tallest plant. Variety CRIS-650 showed uppermost number of sympodial branches plant-1, Seed cotton yield (kg ha-1) and staple length. However the varieties; CRIS-642 performed superior for Seed cotton yield (kg ha-1), GOT, boll weight and micronaire value, CRIS-644 resulted maximum seed index, and CRIS-646 gave pinnacle number of bolls plant-1.

Keywords: Correlation, Micronaire value, Seed cotton yield, Upland cotton, Fiber traits, Gossypium hirsutum L.
