Cotton: A College of Agriculture Report
Abstract:
Forty one short staple varieties and Pima S-6 were grown in a replicated field trial on the Safford Agricultural Center in Graham county. Most of the varieties were commercially available in the cotton belt, however, a few experimental varieties from the New Mexico acalas, ChemBred and from Delta Pines were included. Yields were 15 to 30% lower than the yields in this trial in 1990, with only one variety producing more than 4000 pounds of seed cotton per acre. The top variety was CB (ChemBred) 407 with a yield of 4177 pounds per acre. HS Sal 10, which was number two last year, retained that position in 1991. Newcomers to the top ten were: S1001, HS 46, CBX 1210, DP 5690, STV 506 and DP 5415. Heat unit data from the past couple of years are given in this report along with the average heat unit accumulation.
