Cotton SVPR 5 (TSH 0250) - A high yielding long staple cotton variety for southern zone of India and winter/summer irrigated tracts of Tamil Nadu
SVPR 5 is a high yielding long staple hirsutum cotton variety developed by Cotton Research Station, Srivilliputtur. It was released in the year of 2014 and notified during the year 2016 for kharif season of southern zone of India under for winter and summer irrigated tracts of Tamil Nadu. It is a hybrid derivative of the cross between NDLH 1658 and Surabhi. SVPR 5 cotton is semi spreading in nature with determinant growth habit and matures in 150 days. It has recorded a mean seed cotton yield of 1845 kg/ha which is 13.0 % increase over the zonal check Surabhi in AICCIP trials. The overall performance revealed that the cotton culture TSH 0250 was superior over SVPR 2 and SVPR 4 with an average seed cotton yield of 1661 kg/ha against 1583 kg/ha of SVPR 2 and 1425 kg/ha of SVPR 4.
