Abstract: Present review was directed to define the role of genetic studies viz. genetic potential, variability, heritability, genetic advance, gene action and association of seed-cotton yield and yield contributing traits among parents and their F1 cross combinations. Such knowledge can practically be subjected to devise an efficient selection procedure to develop commercial hybrid cultivars with improved yield, oil % and fiber quality traits; possessing broad genetic base.
