Short Staple Variety Demonstration, Maricopa Agricultural Center, 1990
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractA short staple variety trial was conducted on the demonstration farm, at the Maricopa Agricultural Center in 1989. Nineteen varieties, received from various seed companies, were entered into the test. Yields ranged from 829 to 1428 lbs. lint acre⁻¹ for STY 110 and STV 1324 respectively. Results from the statistical analysis showed significant differences among varieties. Those varieties that were medium to short - season maturity types yielded higher than long, full season maturity types. This difference in yield was most probably due to the hot and humid weather conditions experienced in the 1990 growing season and the varietal differences associated with heat tolerance.
