Cotton Lint Qualities of Varieties Grown in Southeastern Arizona, 1989
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractHigh Volume Instrument (HVI) classing of eighteen cotton varieties grown at several elevations in southeastern Arizona are compared by location in this paper. Data presented herein would indicate that elevation does not affect fiber length nor strength, these factors are more a function of variety and management. Micronaire values were seen to be lower at the higher elevations and this was felt to be a function of lower maturity level because of reduced growing season coupled with production of fine fibered New Mexico acalas. This report also contains HVI values on lint from 47 varieties of short staple cotton grown on the Safford Agricultural Center during the 1989 season.
