Historical Background :

Originally, local desi cotton varieties were grown in the state. The East India Company attempted to introduce American cotton for cultivation during 18th Century on experimental basis on cultivators' field in Gujarat. But since no success was achieved, efforts were made to improve indigenous cottons, particularly after the establishment of cotton research station at Surat in 1896, where systematic work on cotton research started in 1904. It was visualized to combine sturdiness of Asiatic cottons and boll size and lint quality of new world cottons. Accordingly systematic interspecific hybridization work was started in 1923 which was expanded under the scheme for interspecific hybridization in cotton. The research work was strengthened from time to time under state department of agriculture and also under the aegis of ICCC. Inception of All India Coordinated Cotton Improvement Project in 1967 gave it a further boost. At present, cotton research work is carried out through a well-knit system at one main (Surat), 6 (Bharuch, Talod, Anand, Viramgam, Junagadh, Amreli) regional and 6 sub stations (Hansot, Achhalia, Dhandhuka, Ratia, Khapat, Bhachau) distributed in the four SAUs all over the state. The All India Coordinated Cotton Improvement Project currently operates at one main centre at Surat and one sub centre at Junagadh. However, AICCIP experiments are conducted at several voluntary centers like Bharuch, Viramgam, Talod, Anand, Amreli and Dhandhuka.

Since its establishment in 1896, the cotton research station, Surat has been a trail-blazer for its research achievements. Though some varieties were evolved earlier, it got first shot in the arm when the first ever Indo-American variety DEVIRAJ (170 Co2), involving American and Asiatic blood was released in 1951 after several years of intensive efforts with inter specific breeding materials. Release of first intra hirsutum hybrid cotton "HYBRID-4", from this centre in 1971 was another landmark in the history of cotton. This hybrid proved to be harbinger for researchers elsewhere in the country as well as abroad. Then came the first ever budded cotton G. Cot. 101, which was released in 1977. This cotton combined the properties of perennial as well as annual cotton and is especially suited to the needs of adivasi farmers in the non-conventional cotton areas. Concurrent efforts for development of desi hybrid culminated in the release of hybrid G. Cot.DH-7 in 1984. This was another feather in the cap of this station. In fact, it proved to be a trend setter for development of desi hybrid in other states of the country. In 1989, the first ever long staple desi hybrid G. Cot.DH-9 was released. First GMS based desi hybrid of Gujarat G.Cot.M DH-11 was released in 2002. Similarly, first ELS hybrid G. Cot.Hy-102 (H x B) was released in 2002. The first ever Bt cotton hybrids by Public Sector Institute was released as G. Cot. Hybrid - 6 (BG-II) and G. Cot.Hybrid - 8 (BG-II). Thus, the station has the distinction of several firsts to its credit and it is quite heartening to note that many varieties of Gujarat have been widely acclaimed in other states.

Climatic condition in the state

The seed for AICRP experiments as per the technical program and for breeder seed production as per the indent for 2023-24 were timely obtained during April-May 2022. Land preparation and required materials were procured before start of the season. The basal application of phosphorous was given during the opening of ridges and furrows at the end of the May. Regularmonsoon was commenced in the first week of June and effective rainfall during subsequent weeks of June (236 mm in 13 days) facilitated sowing of most of the AICRP experiments & seed production plots by the end of the June. Pre-emergence weedicides (Pendimethalin) was applied before and within 48 hours of sowing which initially checked the weeds. Total 565 mm rainfall occurred in 25days of the month of July. Very low sunshine observed during the July (1.33 hrs.) and high rainfall of 275.5 (27th SMW) and 221.5 (28th SMW) mm, led to water stagnation in some low-lying experimental area for a long period of time, however, it was managed by removing excess water manually and the crop was saved from adverse effect of the water stagnation. Due to cloudy weather observed during the first fortnight of August favored attack of sucking pests especially thrips and leafhopper in most of the experiments which were managed effectively by spraying of systemic insecticides. Later, on getting vapsa condition, the weeding, inter-culturing and other operations were carried out in the field. During September, rain in initial periods and later the cloudy weather led to sucking pests infestation which managed by proper insecticidal sprays. Whitefly, aphid and mealy bug were observed below ETL. The larval population of Helicoverpa, Earias and Spodoptera remained below ETL even in non-Bt cotton. Pink bollworm incidence was found in flowers and green bolls but remained below ETL in Bt and Non-Bt cotton. Diseases like BLB, Alternaria leaf spot and Corynespora leaf spot appeared negligible and low. Due to lack of interculturing in initial periods (June to September), three to five hand weeding operations were performed in some of the experiments. In November, good sunshine hour (7.7 hrs) favored boll bursting and sampling and picking w as initiated in experiments. Total 1493 mm rainfall was received at the station in 80 rainy days. Average maximum and minimum temperature was 32.5°C and 23.9°C, respectively. The crop was little bit late matured and all observations on yield attributing traits were recorded as per the protocol. On farmers field, thrips, leafhopper, mealy bug, aphid and pink bollworm amongst insect pests and bacterial leaf blight, Alternaria leaf spot and Corynespora leaf spot were observed both in irrigated and rainfed regions and management interventions suggested through weekly advisories. Incidence of parawilt and boll rot was also noticed in few fields.

The season for cotton crop was low to moderately favourable due to long cloudy weather during vegetative and flowering stages. Overall the season is moderate for the cotton crop.

Success Story: (Translation from Gujarati) A Front Line Demonstration Plot on Integrated Crop Management in Bt Cotton hybrid (G. Cot. Hy. 8 BG II) was arranged in my field by Main Cotton Research Station, Navsari Agricultural University, Surat in collaboration with Krushi Vigyan Kendra, Chaswad under National Food Security Mission: Commercial Crop: Cotton project. Critical inputs provided by Main Cotton Research Station, Navsari Agricultural University, Surat in the form of seed of first public sector Bt cotton hybrid G. Cot. Hy.8 BG II, no adversely affecting bio fertilizers, pheromone traps and lures for forecasting and management of pink boll worms, safer insecticides useful for cotton pests and Banana Pseudo Stem Sap - A liquid organic fertilizer capable to use as foliar spray for supplement nutrition to cotton seems to be very useful in cotton crop. Cotton growing farmers of our village-Kambodia highly appreciated by receiving this inputs. Farmers of our region could received clear and doubtless understanding for management of pink bollworm from a Live Demonstration organized by NAU, Surat and KVK, Chaswad in our village during kharif-2021 season. We built a confidence that “We shall receive higher cotton yield by adopting modern cotton production and effective protectionusing low cost technologies in future.” It is our great pleasure that Dr. Z. P. Patel, Honble Vice Chancellor, Navsari Agricultural University takes personal interest for organizing these programs in interior tribal areas. Honble Vice Chancellor also provided guidance to us for obtaining good quality cotton production in a seminar. We are very much thankful to scientists of Main Cotton Research Station, Surat and Krushi Vigyan Kendra, Chaswad. Date : 07/02/2022(Ravibhai Babarbhai Vasava)
