AbstractEight field experiments were conducted across the cotton growing areas of Arizona in 1992 for the purpose of evaluating Upland cotton varieties in terms of adaptability and performance. Five commercial cottonseed companies participated in the program. Two varieties were submitted from each company at each location. Experiments were conducted on grower-cooperator fields in each case except one, which was conducted on a University of Arizona Agricultural Center. Locations used in the program spanned the range of conditions common to cotton producing areas of the state from about 500ft. to 3,000ft. elevation. Results indicated a broad range of adaptability and competitiveness on the part of each of the participating companies and their representative varieties. Each of the companies offers a compliment of varieties that can serve to match various production strategies commonly employed in the state as well as showing a strong capacity to be regionally adaptive.
