Discovery opens the door to producing cotton varieties ideally suited for agriculture
Scientists crack the genetic code determining leaf shape in cotton, ST. LOUIS, MO, December 20, the Danforth Plant Science Center, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Cotton Incorporated describe how, major leaf shapes in upland cotton. The researchers also describe how they manipulated the genetic code to alter the shape of a cotton plant’s leaves in potentially beneficial ways. That’s a significant step forward toward producing cotton varieties that produce higher yields at less cost
