AbstractTWO on farm, replicated short staple variety demonstrations were established in 1996. Twelve varieties were evaluated on the Carpenter farm in Solomon and on the Colvin farm in Eden. Several new varieties were planted in both studies, including 2 varieties from Stoneville, 2 varieties from Australia and DP 35B, the Bt version of DP 5690. Delta Pine 5690 and DP 35B were the highest yielding varieties with yields of 1697 and 1220 pounds of lint per acre at the Solomon and Eden locations, respectively.
