 Cotton leaf curl disease is the devastating disease in the sub-continent. There are huge seed cotton yield and economic losses due to it. There is dire need to establish such a breeding program that contains morpho-fiber strong base of the genotypes. The present study is designed to evaluate the morphological and fiber quality traits of cotton. The significant variation is seen in all the studied traits. The CLCuD retards the plant growth. However, some genotypes later recover. The genotypes CRIS-134, CRIS-543, CRIS-129 and CRIS-134 needs to be exploited and used in the breeding programs to develop better genotypes under ClCuD infinity with strong performance.
