DP 2012 B3XF

This versatile variety shows strength and performance across the cotton belt.

Proven Performance Across the Cotton Belt

Not every early-season variety can adapt and thrive in multiple parts of the cotton belt, but DP 2012 B3XF has the unique ability to travel well from the fields in West Texas to the Carolinas and everywhere in between.

After extensive development and testing at our Lubbock breeding research facility and real-world evaluation as part of our New Product Evaluator (NPE) Program, DP 2012 B3XF shows a high-level of indeterminacy, good stand establishment and excellent fiber package as well as strong yield potential for growers throughout the belt.

Midseason Observations
  • Good fruiting up and down the plant
  • Very responsive to PGR management
  • Bacterial Blight resistant
  • Good stand establishment
  • Shows a high level of indeterminacy under heat stress
  • Open-boll type that holds very well
Harvest Observations
  • Excellent fiber strength
