Abstract:
Pima experimental strains P73, P74, P75, P76, P77, P79 and the varieties Pima S-6 (PS-6) and Pima S-7 (PS-7) were grown in replicated Regional tests at ten locations across the Pima belt in 1992. Tests were machine harvested for yield determination, plant heights were measured, and fiber samples were collected for fiber analysis. Considerable genotype by environment interaction for yield potential occurred across tests in 1992. Across all locations, the cultivar PS-7 ranked first in yield followed by the strains P79 and P75. The cultivar PS-6 was the tallest entry in the tests, followed by P75. The strains P76, P77, and P79 were uniformly shorter. Considering yield and fiber properties concurrently, strain P75 was the superior strain entry of the 1992 tests.
