Journal:
Cotton: A College of Agriculture Report
Abstract:
Eleven varieties of short staple cotton, containing four varieties of Acala 1517 (including two new releases from New Mexico State University) were grown near the town of Cochise, which is at an elevation of 4,180 feet and has an average growing season of 232 days. Northrup King's KC 380 (the same as the experimental variety 2019) was the high yielder for the second year in a row, with 954.6 pounds of lint per acre. One of the new Acala' s, 1517-77BR was second in yield, with 936.5 pounds per acre. With the current premium structure, 1517-77BR would produce about $50 more gross farm income per acre than KC 380.
