AbstractUpland cotton advanced strains and commercial check varieties were evaluated in replicated field studies at three locations in 2004. The test sites include the AZ locations of Safford, Maricopa, and Yuma. Eight seed companies submitted a maximum of ten advanced strain entries per location. Three commercial check varieties were used at all three sites, and included ST5599BR, DP449BR, and DP448B. Data collected included final plant heights, yield, and fiber quality. The research is conducted in order to develop public unbiased performance data of genetic materials that have moved to the advanced stages of testing and are being considered for commercial release. The data have historically been used to add to seed company databases and assist with commercial release decisions.
