All India Coordinated Cotton Improvement Project started functioning since 1967. The major objective of the project has been to maintain and screen the germplasm of cotton, develop high yielding cotton varieties/hybrids for Haryana state, study agronomic requirements and develop production technologies for higher cotton production under normal and stress conditions, develop management strategies for emerging pests and diseases in the climate change scenario. With the funds available from State Government, work is also carried out and strengthened on other aspects like development of high yielding and early maturing desi cotton (G. arboreum) varieties with suitable quality, breeding for high yielding and high ginning outturn desi cotton quality hybrids based on genetic male sterility system and development & maintenance of genetic male sterile lines in desi cotton. Work is also carried out on the development of high yielding, better fiber quality and CLCuD resistant Bt cotton varieties/hybrids and genotypes suitable for high density planting system.
An interdisciplinary team of seven scientists, three senior research fellows and two Young Professionals; is engaged in improvement work on cotton. Presently eight schemes are operative in Cotton Section for cotton improvement work at CCS HAU, Hisar.

system having Eucalyptus tereticornis as a strip plantation should be established on the water logged soils. In this model north to south field boundary is converted into 2.6 m wide and 45 cm high raised bund on which two rows of trees can be planted. The intervening space is left for the crops with minimum of shade effect due to the north-south direction of bunds� initiated by Drs. O.P. Toky, Rajiv Angrish and J.C. Kaushik included in the HAU Package of Practices.
