Nineteen F5 individual populations selected from two crosses involving two Gossypium hirsutum cotton varieties RS875 and F1861 with South American germplasm lines SA524 and SA668 were evaluated in randomized block design with three replications in the Kharif season of 2016-17. The objective of study was to develop high yielding (>20quintals/hectare) and high ginning out turn per cent (>35) cultures/ varieties. Out of 19 advance generation, three advance generation individual populations RS875xSA524 P12, F1861xSA668 P15, RS875xSA524 P4 had significantly higher seed cotton yield in comparison to both the check varieties H1226 (1717.37±292.3) and (F1861 1751.09 ±292.3) and possessed GOT% of 40.6, 38.5 and 39.0 and lint yield 935.6, 848.0 and772.4kg/ hectare, respectively. The present study reveals good scope for isolation of pure lines from the advance generation progenies of heterotic F1s for high seed cotton yield and high ginning out turn

Keywords: Advance generation population, Gossypium hirsutum, Ginning out turn percent, Lint yield kg/hectare
