AbstractVariety trials were grown at two locations and with two different sets of short staple varieties. One trial on the Robbs farm, north of Kansas Settlement, tested seven acalas varieties from New Mexico and California and one variety from Australia. The other trial on the Noel Curry farm, near the town of Cochise, tested nine upland varieties as part of the statewide testing program and three acalas from NM and CA. The highest yielding variety in our tests was SG 125 with a yield over 3 bales per acre. In the acala study, the Australian variety and an experimental from NM were the highest yielding varieties with yields just over 2 bales per acre. Lint quality of each variety and an estimated crop value are also given in this paper.
