DP 2020 B3XF

A variety that has a true early-mid maturity with a really good fiber package and excellent fiber length with great potential across the Cotton Belt.

Proven Performance Across the Cotton Belt

While DP 2020 B3XF can be adapted across all soil types, this variety had an excellent showing in the Mid-South, Southeast, East and South Texas. 

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 2020 B3XF brings improved yield potential (as compared to DP 1725 B2XF) and Bollgard® 3 XtendFlex® technology to Texas, the Mid-South and the Far West.

NPE findings and field notes

NPE Findings and Field Notes

DP 2020 B3XF was put to the test as part of our New Product Evaluator (NPE) Program where growers like you evaluated the variety on large-acre plots under their own management systems and field conditions.

Early Season Observations
  • True early-to-mid maturity 
  • Maybe a day or so later than DP 1518 B2XF with maturity 
  • Excellent early season vigor (better than DP 1518 B2XF)
  • Fruits early




Midseason Observations
  • Bacterial blight resistant
  • PGR management needed in short seasons
  • About the same height as DP 1518 B2XF 
  • About the same number of nodes as DP 1555 B2RF
  • Excellent stand establishment
  • Excellent top crop with an impressive boll count
  • Showed strength to terminal an exerted longer internode than other candidates
  • Showed a high level of indeterminacy under heat stress
Harvest Observations
  • Really good fiber package and excellent fiber length
  • Comparable yield to DP 1646 B2XF and DP 1820 B3XF
  • Improved yield to DP 1725 B2XF
  • Good boll retention





After enduring our rigorous development process, including being field-tested by our New Product Evaluators, the Class of 20 has been called one of our strongest classes of Deltapine® cotton yet.
