DP 2055 B3XF

Similar to DP 1646 B2XF in many ways, this aggressive Class of 20 variety shows its true strength across the southern part of the Cotton Belt. 

Proven Performance in the Southern Cotton Belt

This Class of 20 variety really showed its strength in South Texas, Southern High Plains, Mid-South, Southeast, South Delta and the Lower Carolinas, bringing the yield potential and quality growers have seen with DP 1646 B2XF with the protection of Bollgard® 3 XtendFlex® technology. 

After extensive development and testing as part of our New Product Evaluator (NPE) Program, DP 2055 B3XF showed that it might not be a great fit for the northern tier as  it is a rugged and aggressive variety that fits the southern part of the Cotton Belt.
