OLIVEIRA, Francisco de Assis de et al. Cotton yield as a function of salinity and seeds treatment with growth regulator. Rev. Ciênc. Agron. [online]. 2012, vol.43, n.2, pp.279-287. ISSN 1806-6690.

This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of different salinity levels of irrigation water and seed treated with growth regulator on the yield of cotton. It was used an entirely statistical randomized design, in a factorial scheme 5 x 2, with four replications. The treatments resulted from the combination of four salinity levels of irrigation water (S1-0.5; S2-2.0; S3-3.5; S4-5.0 and S5-6.5 dS m-1) in treated and untreated seeds with growth regulator. The variables were: production of cotton, seed and fiber, 100 seed weight and percentage of fiber. There was not interaction between salinity levels and seed treated. The parameters of cotton production are reduced with the use of water salinity from 3.5 dS m-1, independent of seed treated or not with growth regulators. Agronomic traits 100 seed weight, percentage of fiber and seed cotton production are not influenced by mepiquat chloride. The seed treatment with growth regulator do not affects the adverse effect of salinity.

Keywords : Crop-cotton; Saline stress; Mepiquat chloride.
