AbstractA field trial was established during the 2002 growing season as part of the statewide Upland Cotton Variety Testing Program. This trial was located in Thatcher with Dennis Layton Farms as the cooperator. The location was one of eleven around the state. Nine varieties from 5 different participating seed companies were evaluated in this study. Several varieties performed well including Deltapine DP555BR, a new variety from Deltapine, DP655BR, Fiber Max 989BR and 991R. Results indicate that DP655BR, which has traditionally been grown in this valley, continues to be an excellent choice. However, there are several other varieties that have recently come onto the market that provide very strong alternatives for cotton production in the Upper Gila Valley.
