      Seven New Mexico acala varieties and one non-acala short staple variety were evaluated for yield and other agronomic variables. 1517-88 produced the most seed cotton but HS 46, the non-acala produced slightly more lint. Both varieties yielded slightly less than three bales of lint per acre. Yields of most of the varieties in the trial were 100 to 200 pounds less than in the previous year. It is felt that the yield reductions were probably more due to lack of heat units during the growing season than the heat spell in June.
