PRODUCT
Productiveness
Productiveness
Relative assessment of the productivity of an accession by observing the boll load on a single plant
1-9 low-high DTL rating
SFCn, an AFIS measurement on the percent of the fibers, calculated by number, that are less than 0.50 inch or 12.7 mm
SFC - AFIS SFCn Measurement
Estimating relative maturity of entries when earliest cotton had all bolls open
PM - Estimation
FNS (g), an AFIS measurement on nep size
FNS - AFIS Measurement

VWR
Verticillium wilt resistance
Resistance to verticillium wilt (Verticillium dahliae)
Bollworm resistance
CTBWR - Estimation
Mono_branch - Counting
Number of monopodial branches counting
cN/tex
PlotHomo - Estimation
Indicates degree of uniformity of plants in field plot. unif = appears uniform and each trait can be given a single score, not unif = not uniform without classification, seg = one or more traits are segregating and usually at least one trait can have multiple scores, mix = seed of another accession has germinated in the same plot, outcross = segregation is best explained by a wide cross with another accession or even a different species, volunteer = other cotton seed has germinated in place of or in competition with the accession
Standard method for the total Copper (Cu) concentration measured in a given volume of stem extract
CUCONC - Measurement
VWDI - Computation
Verticillium wilt incidence on is calculated in seedling stage, as the ratio between the number of infected plants and the total number of plants. OR: Disease incidence = No. of infected plants x 100 Total no. of plant assessed
