Empirical cotton breeding was based upon the concept of selecting single and best high-yielding progeny from the segregating populations to develop a cultivar. It helped in releasing of high yielding varieties with superior fibre quality through conventional breeding. Though the production of cotton has been increased manifold in the last decades, but it has also seen enormous ebb and flow of yield uncertainties during the past several years. Therefore, the development of climatic resilient cotton ideotypes through the introduction of wild alleles and using contemporary genetic markers have become inevitable. Emerging genome engineering technologies such as CRISPR/Cas9 system can also potentially exploited to edit the disease susceptible and negative regulators of yield related genes in cotton. In the present review we concentrate on accomplishments and forthcoming of plant breeding and biotechnology to facelift the cotton breeding programs. View Full-Text
