AbstractThree new California acala varieties are evaluated in this field trial along with nine New Mexico acalas. The highest yielding variety was New Mexico's 1517-88 with a yield of 2.8 bales per acre. California's MAXXA came in number 3, but not very far behind, yieldwise. Nazas 77, a rust resistant variety from Mexico,was evaluated in a second trial at this same location. Rust was not a problem at this site in 1991 so its rust- resistance could not be evaluated, but it yielded within 5% of the yield of 1517-88.
