MetadataShow full item record
AbstractTwenty five long staple 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 83-208 with a yield of 1180 pounds of lint p1er acre. This interspecific hybrid from Israel was the highest yielding cultivar in the 1999 test, also. The top five varieties consisted of two interspecific hybrids from Isreal, a variety developed by the University of Arizona and entries from Buttonwillow Research and California Planting Cotton Seed Distributors (CPCSD). The average yield in the trial was the same as last year, but the highest yield was slightly lower. Yield and other agronomic data as well as fiber quality data are contained in this paper.
