The study deeply explores the genetic basis of cotton fiber length and strength. As a key factor in determining cotton quality, in-depth research on its genetic basis is crucial to improving cotton yield and fiber quality. This study highlights its importance in improving cotton quality and sustainable development of the industry. By describing the relationship between genotype and fiber length, the sources of genetic variation and the genetic regulatory network, it reveals the complex mechanism of fiber quality formation. At the same time, examples are cited and the latest research progress is introduced, which deepens the understanding of key gene functions and proposes future research directions, including in-depth research on gene functions, analysis of genetic and environmental interactions, and application of emerging technologies. From the perspective of sustainable development, it proposes Suggestions on strengthening agricultural ecological practices, promoting the popularization of agricultural science and technology and upgrading the industrial chain. This study provides comprehensive scientific support for the sustainable development of the cotton industry.
