Abstract

Field trials laid out in a completely Randomized Design were conducted in one location in each of the three Geo-political zones of Kano state and a control in Katsina state, a known cotton growing state, during the 2004 wet season. The objective was to assess the impact of geographical location on the growth and yield parameters of SAMCOT 9 cotton variety and to determine the possibility of growing cotton throughout the state. Most growth parameters were significant (p<0.001) in relation to location (site). A low yield ranging from 700 to 800Kg/ha seed cotton was obtained in different locations when cotton was grown under the same agronomic practices which could be attributed to early ending of rainy season in September, 2004. It appeared that the three geographical zones of the state could support substantial cotton production depending on the amount and distribution of rainfall and other ecological factors. Farmers in all the zones are ready to grow cotton if market is   made available to them nearby.

Keywordscotton, growth, yield, geographical location.
