AbstractEleven field experiments were conducted in many of the cotton growing areas of Arizona in 1995 for the purpose of evaluating Upland cotton varieties in terms of adaptability and performance. Seven 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. Locations used in the program spanned the range of conditions common to cotton producing areas of the state from about 150 ft. to 4, 000 ft. elevation. Results indicated a broad range of adaptability and competitiveness on the part of each of the participating companies and their representative varieties. The 1995 season offered some extremes in terms of weather conditions, with very cold spring temperatures, followed by very hot conditions in July and August. Variety performance under these extremes offers an opportunity for review and comparison with regard to adaptability. 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.
