Title:
The Effect of Low Quality Seed on Lint Yields
Author:
Hofmann, Wallace C.; Kittock, David L.
Issue Date:
Mar-1986
Publisher:
College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ)
Journal:
Cotton: A College of Agriculture Report
Abstract:
Comparison of 23 low quality upland cotton seed lots with high quality lots in 19 tests over 4 years showed consistent lint yield reduction from low quality seed. The low quality seed lots produced an average of 226 pounds less lint/acre than high quality seed. At $0.60/pound of lint that is $135.37/acre. By analysis of covariance, which adjusted lint yield for equal stand, poor stand explained 162 pounds of lint loss ($97.20/acre) and apparent reduced seedling vigor accounted for 64 pounds of lint loss or $38.16/acre.
