Short Staple Variety Demonstration, Pinal County, 1990Malcuit, J. E.; Stedman, S.; Silvertooth, J. C.; Silvertooth, Jeff; Bantlin, Marguerite (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 1991)Short staple variety trials were conducted for three years at Prechel Farms near Coolidge At. Six varieties were included in 1988, twelve in 1989, and eight in 1990. Results from the statistical analysis showed significant differences among varieties in each of the three tests. Lint yields ranged from 908 to 1313 lbs. lint acre⁻¹ in 1988, 2844 to 4827 lbs. seedcotton acre⁻¹ in 1989, and 695 to 1059 lbs. lint acre⁻¹ in 1990. Those varieties that were medium to short-season maturity types yielded higher than long season maturity types in the 1988 and 1990 seasons. The reverse was true in the 1989 season.
