AbstractTwenty long staple varieties were tested in a replicated small plot trial on the Safford Agricultural Center in Graham County at an elevation of 2950 feet. The highest yielding variety in this study was HAZ 195 with a yield of 1408 pounds of lint per acre. This interspecific hybrid possessing a “fuzzy” seed and was tested with the Acala varieties in 2000, but was included in the Pima study this year because of it’s fiber characteristics. OA 345 was the highest yielding nonhybrid variety in the study, it yielded nearly 800 pounds of lint per acre. Yield and other agronomic data as well as fiber quality data are contained in this paper along with estimated values of the lint.
