AbstractForty-nine, short- staple varieties and Pima S -6 were grown in a replicated trial on the Safford Agricultural Center in Graham County. Most of the varieties were commercially available in the Cotton Belt, however, a few experimental varieties from the New Mexico acalas and from Delta Pines were included. Weather conditions were favorable through most of the year and the cotton produced well. Fifteen varieties produced more than 4000 pounds of seed cotton per acre, with the highest yielding variety producing 4759 pounds per acre. Delta Pine 77 was the highest yielding commercial variety but it was topped by an experimental New Mexico acala.
