Abstract

Improvement of yield and fiber quality traits, as well as resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses, is one of the main tasks of cotton research and production programs. In cotton growing, one of the urgent issues is the identification and development of initial donors genetically resistant to the stress factors such as salinity, drought, insect pests, and pathogens. Furthermore, using the wild ancestors of cotton species in breeding allows for increasing the genetic variability of economically important traits of cultivated cotton varieties. Especially, the enrichment of the cotton gene pool with wild species resistant to various stressor factors and complex and synthetic hybrid populations with unique characteristics and able to quickly adapt to different conditions obtained through interspecies hybridization and experimental polyploidy methods, and their introduction into practice is an urgent scientific and is of practical importance.
