AbstractTen short staple cotton varieties including two New Mexico acalas varieties and one advanced strain, four California acalas and three Australian upland varieties were tested in the 1996 variety study. The Australian variety IF 1001 had the highest lint yield with a yield of 1013 pounds per acre, followed by the New Mexico advances strain. The average yield was more than 100 pounds per acre lower than the previous year, due to an early frost. In addition to lint yields; percent lint, plant heights, height to node ratios, plant populations and lint hvi values are shown. A lint yield comparison for 1993 through 1996 is included in this paper.
