AbstractEighteen Acala cotton varieties were tested in a replicated small plot trial on the Safford Agricultural Center in Graham county at an elevation of 2950 feet. The highest yielding variety in this study was Hazera 195-208, an interspecific hybrid from Israel, with a yield of 1387 pounds of lint per acre. It was followed closely by two varieties from New Mexico, 1517-99 and B7514. Hazera 195-208 had the highest yield in an interspecific hybrid study and 1517-99 was the highest yielding Acala variety in the Upland cotton regional variety trial in 1999 (1). The next five varieties consisted of two interspecific hybrids from Israel, a variety from Buttonwillow Research and two advanced strains from New Mexico. Yield and other agronomic data as well as fiber quality data are contained in this paper.
