Investigation into the effect of different geometric arrangements on morpho-qualitative traits of a cotton cultivar NIAB-86 were carried out at the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad. The geometric arrangement comprised 60, 70, and 80 cm spaced single row and 90, 105 and 120 cm double-row strip plantation . Plant population of about five plants m-2 arranged in the pattern of 90 cm spaced double-row strips with 30 cm space between the rows of strip (30/90 cm) appeared to be optimum for getting good yield of seed cotton. The maximum seed cotton yield of 1693 kg ha-1 was obtained from the crop planted in 90 cm spaced double-row strips against the minimum of 1431 (kg ha-1) in case of 60 cm spaced single-row plantation. However, both fibre length and fibre strength were not affected significantly by the different geometric arrangements.
