AbstractTwenty one Upland cotton advanced strains varieties which are not commercially available were evaluated in replicated field studies in 1995 on two farm sites in Queen Creek, Arizona and Buckeye, Arizona representing seven seed companies. Twenty four advanced strains representing eight seed companies were evaluated on a commercial site in Gila Bend, Arizona. Participating seed companies submitted three advanced strain entries, plus a commercially available check of their choice at each site. The Gila Bend site represented strains of a more indeterminate nature for a full season production approach, while the sites at Buckeye and Queen Creek consisted of more determinate entry characteristics to represent a reduced season production approach. The highest lint yields were obtained from Germains 9230 (1756 lb./a), Delta and Pine Land Co. 5517 (1116 lb./a), and Delta and Pine Land Co. 9057 (1578 lb./a) at Queen Creek, Buckeye, and Gila Bend respectively.
