Moreover, the introduction of Genetically Modified (GM) cotton in Pakistan has also impacted crop yields. Bacillus thuringiensis is a soil bacterium that when expressed with the cotton gene, makes the cotton plant naturally pest resistant. Bt Cotton (GM cotton with bacillus thuringiensis in its genes) is now used widely all over the. The history of cotton can be traced to played an important role in the history of India, the British Empire, and the United States, and continues to be an important crop and commodity.. The history of the domestication of cotton is very complex and is not known exactly. Several isolated civilizations in both the Old and New World independently domesticated and converted.

All parts of the cotton plant are useful. The most important is the fiber or lint, which is used in making cotton cloth. Linters – the short fuzz on the seed – provide cellulose for making plastics, explosives and other products. Linters also are incorporated into high quality paper products and processed into batting for padding mattresses. Boll weight is expressed as grams of seed cotton per boll. Lint fraction of seed cotton is assumed to be 35%. Bolls Per Acre necessary to produce one bale ( lbs) per acre at these boll weights. Boll weight is expressed as grams of seed cotton per boll. Lint fraction of seed cotton is assumed to be 35%. g.

  There, machines feed the cotton into a cotton gin, which pulls the cotton fibers apart to remove unwanted debris such as dirt, twigs, burs, leaves and other plant material. Then the gin's saws and teeth separate the cotton fiber from the seeds, sending them in different directions. The cotton fibers will be used to make fabric. The top producers are China, India, United States, Pakistan and Brazil. Cotton is susceptible to a range of pests and disease, which means that cotton farmers must use heavy chemicals such as pesticides. Recently, scientists have genetically modified the cotton plant to reduce the reliance on these chemicals. Uses of cotton.
