Abstract

Agriculture contributes mainly to national economies specifically in developing countries, and cotton is an important cash crop. In certain countries, it is recognized as “white gold” since it is earning foreign exchange. In the world, cotton fiber is a distinguished fiber that serves as a raw material for textile industries having a yearly significant economic impact of at least $600 billion. Genetic diversity and its usage in getting sustainability of lint cotton and cotton yield, and usage of bio-based substitute such as procession and change in various biochemical, physiological, morphological and genetically significant traits. Nearly 25 M tons of total cotton is produced worldwide annually. Top ten cotton-producing countries are India, China, the United States, Pakistan, Brazil, Australia, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, and Burkina Faso.
