Abstract:
Two short staple variety trials and 1 long staple variety trial were harvested in Greenlee county in 1988. In the short staple trial comparing the new and experimental New Mexico acalas with 2 other lower quality varieties, Genhains new GC 260 was the top yielding variety with 1,087 pounds of lint per acre, but it came in fifth when comparing dollar value per acre because of the premium structure for the New Mexico acalas. Two new experimental acalas, 2745 and B510, produced the highest income per acre. The short staple trial, which tested longer - season varieties, had problems with low micronaire values. The newly released 1517-88 variety produced the top yield and produced the most income per acre. Two of the experimental long staple varieties topped the yield of S-6 and 3 of the 7 varieties tested yielded over 650 pounds of lint per acre.
