Abstract:
Pima experimental strains P73, P74, P75, P76, P77, and P78 and the varieties Pima S-6 (PS-6) and Pima S-7 (PS-7) were grown in Regional tests at seven locations across the Pima belt in 1991. When yields were averaged across five test locations below 2,500 feet, the strains P73, P74, P75, and P76 ranked higher than PS-6, but lower than PS-7. At two test locations above 2,500 feet the strains P76 and P73 ranked higher in yield than PS-6 and PS-7. There was a trend across all locations for the strains P73, P74, P75 and P76 to be shorter in height than PS-6. The strain P76, which was the highest yielding strain across all locations, was the shortest strain at five of the seven locations. Strains included in all tests tended to have whiter, stronger fiber than PS-6. The above was not the case for P77 and P78, which were present in only two tests.
