Abstract:
Sixteen long staple varieties were tested in a replicated small plot trial on the Safford Agricultural Center in Graham county at an elevation of 2950 feet. The highest yielding variety in this study was OA 340 with a yield of 1021 pounds of lint per acre. It was followed by two other Olvey varieties yielding over 900 pounds per acre, including OA 322 and OA 361 (White Pima). In the adjacent regional short staple cotton trial were three interspecific hybrids from Hazera, an Israeli Seed Company. These hybrids grew like short staple cotton, but the fiber was more like the barbadense parent. These hybrids yielded from 1146 to 1091 pounds per acre. Their data is included at the bottom of the tables for comparison with the other long staple variety values. Yield and other agronomic data as well as fiber quality data are contained in this paper.
