Table 2 Mean squares from analysis of variance for plant height, seed cotton yield/plant and ginning outturn of eight cotton genotypes/strains/accessions grown under short term hypoxia conditions

From: Hypoxia tolerance studies for yield, fiber and physiological traits in cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.)
