Each season a new set of candidate cotton varieties are introduced through the Deltapine® New Product Evaluator (NPE) program.
This study was conducted to evaluate the new products in the cotton production system at Scott, Mississippi.
|Location||Scott, MS||Planting Date||5/17/19|
|Soil Type||Commerce silt loam||Harvest Date||10/9/19
An average turnout of 42% was observed across the tested varieties (Figure 1).
Higher than expected yields were observed across this study. Of the 12 tested varieties, 9 varieties had calculated yields of greater than 4 bales/acre (greater than 1920 lb/acre). The trial average was 1997 lb/acre.
In this demonstration, the highest yield ever recorded at Scott Learning Center was harvested. DP 1646 B2XF yielded 2394 lb of lint/acre or 4.9875 bales/acre. This is likely a function of favorable weather, management, and yield potential, which were all greatly positive factors during 2019.
