Short Staple Variety Demonstration, Graham County, 1988Clark, L. J.; Cluff, R. E.; Silvertooth, Jeff; Isbell, Joan (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 1989-03)Cotton lint yields in the variety trials in Graham county were higher than the 1987 yields by close to 200 pounds per acre. Two varieties, BR 110 and NK KNX 111 (now KC 311) yielded more than DP 90 at the Thatcher site, the highest yield being 1,569 pounds of lint per acre. In Eden, DP 90 was the highest yielding variety with 1,237 pounds of lint per acre. The New Mexico acalas didn't yield as much lint per acre as the top yielding varieties, but with 1988's premium, produced substantial income per acre. In Thatcher the highest yielding acala produced $861 per acre compared with BR 110's $910, whereas in Eden the highest yielding acala produced $736 per acre against DP 90's $717.
