VARIETY TRIALS OF UPLAND COTTON

Hugh A. Peacock1/

We have grown a cotton variety trial at AREC Jay for the last 15 years to deter-
mine those varieties best adapted to this area and to provide a basis for variety
recommendations by the Extension Service. Variety trial results for 1994 and
averages over several years are included in this report. Also included are re-
sults from variety trials grown in Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Escambia, and Suwannee
counties; WFREC, Jay, NFREC, Marianna; Fairhope, Headland, and Monroeville, Ala-
bama; and Tifton, Georgia. From comparison of these reports, one should be able
to determine the cotton variety best adapted to a general production area.

EXPLANATION OF DATA

Harvest of Seed Cotton:
Tests at AREC Jay, Santa Rosa, Fairhope, Brewton, Headland, Monroeville, and
Tifton, were harvested by a mechanical spindle picker. Average yield of seed
cotton was determined for each variety at each location. At other locations,
tests were hand-picked and weighed to determine yield of seed cotton.

Lint Percentages:
Seed cotton samples from each variety were ginned on a 10-saw gin at Fairhope,
Headland, Monroeville, Alabama, and Tifton, Georgia. Lint percentage was cal-
culated by dividing weight of lint by weight of seed cotton sample and multiply-
ing by 100.

Lint Yield:
Lint yield was determined by multiplying seed cotton yield by lint percentage for
that variety. Lint yield from Florida tests was determined by multiplying seed
cotton yield by 0.40, an average lint percentage figure for this area.

Fiber Properties:
Length. For Alabama tests, this is the fiber length measured with the HVI instru-
ment and approximates classer's staple. For Georgia tests, this is the fiber
length measured with the Digital Fibrograph. The 2.5 is the length in inches and
approximates classer's staple; .50 is length in inches of the test fiber specimen
spanned by 50% of the fiber scanned.

Strength. A measure of the fiber strength of a bundle of fiber measured with two
jaws holding the fiber bundle separated by 1/8-inch, expressed in grams force per
tex. Tex is a size measurement of the fiber bundle expressed as mass, in milli-
meters, of 1 meter of the fiber filaments. The data are given as the force, in
grams, needed to break this bundle. The Georgia data are reported in grams per
grex, an older measurement of force, in grams, needed to break the fiber bundle,
and is noted as Ti. In both measurements, the higher the number the stronger the
fiber.

Agricultural Sciences, AREC, Jay.

Elongation (El). A measure of the percentage stretch before the fibers break.

Micronaire. This measures the fineness of the cotton fibers taken from the ginned
lint. The smaller the micronaire reading, the finer and/or more immature the
fibers. The desirable range of micronaire is 3.5 to 4.9.

Uniformity. A measure of the uniformity of the fiber length of the fiber sample.

Earliness. Where more than one harvest was made, earliness is reported as the
percentage of the total yield harvested at the first picking.

Fusarium Wilt:
Reaction of varieties to Fusarium oxysporum f. vasififectum was evaluated under
field conditions at the E. V. Smith Research Center, Plant Breeding Unit,
Tallassee, AL. These data are courtesy K. M. Glass, Research Assistant of
Agronomy and Soils, and Dr. W. S. Gazaway, Professor and Extension Pathologist/
Nematologist, Auburn University, Auburn, AL.

RESULTS

WFREC. Jay:
The WFREC Jay cotton variety test is a continuing evaluation of available cotton
varieties from private companies and state agricultural experiment stations.
Breeding lines that are likely to be released are also tested. We try to test
only those varieties and strains that %Jill be adapted to the North Florida-
South Georgia-South Alabama area. Cultural practices are those generally
recommended by University of Florida to farmers. Every effort is made to test
the varieties and present the results in an unbiased manner. Appropriate analyses
of the yield data were made. The variability in the test was measured and is
expressed as a percentage of the test mean, that is, the coefficient of varia-
tion (CV). An indication of the magnitude of difference between variety averages
necessary to be considered a real difference is given for each location and is
designated as the Least Significance Difference (LSD05).

Thirty cotton varieties were tested in a single trial replicated four times in
1994 on a Red Bay sandy loam to determine yield. All varieties were planted May
11 at the rate of 15 Ibs/acre acid delinted seed. A preplant application of 450
lbs/acre 3-9-18 with sulfur and minors was disked into the soil along with
Treflan and Vernam. Ammonium nitrate was applied as a top-dressing at 200
lbs/acre. Shortly thereafter 300 lbs/acre 14-0-14 also was applied as a top-
dressing. Pix was applied once and urea and boron at 7 lbs/acre N once. The
stand was never thinned. No supplemental water was applied. Plots were harvested
November 16.

Yields were good for most varieties considering the amount of water that fell
in June and July (Table 1). The overall mean for the test was 1089 Ibs lint/acre,
about 130 lbs less than in 1993. The data on yield and boll size from the test at
WFREC Jay in 1994 are shown in Table 2. The highest yield was from Deltapine 5415
and Deltapine 5690, followed closely by Deltapine 51.

Data on yield at WFREC Jay in 1994 along with 2-, 3-, 4-, 5-, and 6-year average
yields are shown in Table 3. The highest yielding variety of the varieties grown
3 years was Deltapine 5690 followed closely by MD51ne and Deltapine DES119; of
varieties grown 6 years was Deltapine DES119 followed closely by Deltapine 51.









Statewide Tests:
Data on yield of several cotton varieties grown at 3 locations in Santa Rosa
County and 7 locations in North Florida are presented in Table 4. The average
highest yielding variety from the 3 Santa Rosa locations was Deltapine 5415
followed by Deltapine 51. The highest yielding variety planted at all North
Florida locations (excluding Suwannee County) was Deltapine 51 followed by
Deltapine 5415. Highest yielding variety from any test was Chembred 232 from
Okaloosa County(1655 lbs lint/acre).

The 1992, 1993, 1994 and 3-year average performance of cotton varieties grown in
Santa Rosa County and in all Florida locations is given in Table 5. Average high-
est yield in Santa Rosa County locations for the 3 years was from Deltapine 5415
and from all Florida locations was from MD51ne.

Table 6 shows the grade, staple, micronaire, and strength in addition to yield
from varieties grown in Santa Rosa County on the Mickey Diamond farm.

New Strains Test:
Data on yield of several new strains grown in a test at WFREC Jay on Red Bay
sandy loam fertilized with 450 Ibs/acre 3-9-18 with sulfur and minors plus 200
lbs/acre ammonium nitrate plus 300 lbs/acre 14-0-14 are presented in Table 7. Of
the new cotton strains, Chembred 232 was highest in yield followed closely by
SGX-326 (Sure Grow). Yields were good with an overall mean of 1067 lbs lint/acre.

Georgia Tests:
Data on yield and other characteristics of cotton varieties grown at Tifton
(Tables 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13) are presented for your perusal. Of special interest
might be Table 13 which presents data on high quality (strong fibers with desir-
able micronaire) varieties that might be grown in the area. Length, strength,
and micronaire values for each variety in this test should be the values that
could be expected from those same varieties grown in North Florida. Yields would
be different.

Yields in the variety trial at Tifton were excellent (Table 8) with the overall
mean of the test 1368 lbs lint/acre. The highest yielding variety was Sure Grow
1001 followed closely by Sure Grow 501.

The 3-year average performance of cotton varieties grown at Tifton, GA is shown
in Table 9. Stoneville KC-311 was highest in yield followed closely by Deltapine
51, Deltapine 5415, Stoneville LA887, and Stoneville Georgia King.

The 3-year average performance data of cotton varieties grown at Athens, Calhoun,
Midville., Plains and Tifton, GA under irrigation are shown in Table 10.

Preliminary cotton variety test data for 1994 at Tifton are shown in Table 11.
None of the new entries performed as well as Deltapine 5415. The average yield
for the test was 1338 Ibs lint/acre.

Data from the strains test grown at Tifton in 1994 are shown in Table 12. The
highest yielding new strain, CBX477, did not yield significantly more lint/acre
than Deltapine Acala 90 or Deltapine 5415 but did yield significantly more than
Sure Grow 404 and Stoneville Georgia King. The average yield for the test was
1375 lbs lint/acre.

The data on yield and other characteristics presented in Table 13 are from high
quality strains and varieties grown at Tifton. The length, strength, and micro-
naire of Acala 1517-88 may be used as a check to measure length, strength, and
micronaire of other entries tested. Deltapine 50 is the regular quality variety
included in the test as another check.

Alabama Tests:
A summary of 1994 growing season rainfalland soil types for cotton tests in
Alabama are presented in Tables 14 and 15.

Data on yield and lint percent along with 2-, and 3-year average yields of cotton
varieties grown at Fairhope, Headland, and Monroeville are presented in Tables 16,
17, and 18. The highest yielding variety in 1994 at Fairhope was Sure Grow 501.
Highest yielding variety grown 2 and 3 years was also Sure Grow 501. The highest
yielding variety in 1994 at Headland was Sure Grow 223. Highest yielding variety
grown 2 and 3 years was Stoneville 474 and Chembred 1233, respectively. The
highest yielding variety in 1994 at Monroeville was Sure Grow 501. Highest yield-
ing variety grown 2 and 3 years was Sure Grow 501 and Stoneville LA887, respec-
tively.

Cotton fiber analyses from varieties grown at Fairhope, Headland, and Monroeville
in 1994 are presented in Tables 19, 20, and 21. These tables indicate that, in
general, the strength of cotton varieties that have come on the market since
Deltapine 51 was introduced are stronger than Deltapine 51. The trend in new
varieties seems to be toward stronger fibers within premium micronaire range.

Table 22 presents average lint percent and earliness of cotton varieties grown at
all Alabama locations in 1994, the 1993-94 average, and the 1992-1994 average.
These data may be used as indicators of the earliness and lint percent of varieties
grown with respect to each other. A variety with 92% harvest at first picking is
earlier than a variety from which only 82% of the total seed cotton is harvested
at first picking.

Fusarium Wilt:
Data from the fusarium wilt test grown at the E. V. Smith Research Center, Plant
Breeding Unit, Tallassee, AL are shown in Table 23. These entries were grown on an
Independence loamy fine sand highly infested with both the fusarium wilt fungus
(Fusarium oxysporum) Schlect f. vasinfectum [Atk.] (Snyd. & Hans.) and root-knot
nematodes (Meloidogne incognita).

Plots were 36-inch-wide rows, 30 feet in length, separated by 5-foot alleys. Four
replications of the test entries and checks, arranged in a block design, were
evaluated. Both susceptible (Rowden) and resistant (M-315) cultivars were included
as checks. Auburn 56 was used as the resistant check in the Regional Fusarium Wilt
Test for many years. However, M-315 is now being used as the resistant check, be-
cause it is the most consistently resistant cultivar presently available. Rowden
was planted in row 5 and every tenth row thereafter and M-315 in row 10 and every
tenth row thereafter throughout the test. Plots were planted June 2. Initial plant
counts were made on June 24. Wilted plants were counted and removed on July 19,
August 1, August 12, August 29, and September 13. The remaining live plants were
also counted and recorded on September 19, Percent wilted plants was then deter-
mined and mean wilting for a given entry calculated.


-4-









Average wilting of the susceptible Rowden was 84, 66, 60, and 86 percent for the
four replications (74 percent average). Corresponding wilt percentages for the
resistant check, M-315, were 13, 8, 6, and 8 (9 percent average). Critical evalua-
tion of a given entry should be made relative to the checks closest to the entry
within each replication. Evaluation of an entry over years should be made only
between the relative value of this entry and that of the closest susceptible
check rows for each year.

A soil analysis for nematodes revealed that southern root-knot (Meloidogyne
incognita) and lance (Hoplolaimus galeatus) were two predominant nematode species
in the test plots in 1994. High populations of both species were found throughout
the test area. Other nematode genera found were stubby root (Trichodorus sp.) and
stunt (Tylenchorhynchus sp.). Root-knot nematodes, however, appear to be causing
the major damage to cotton in the Fusarium Wilt Test as indicated by the high
galling indices found on the roots of all cotton lines.

Table 24 is a summary of the data presented in Table 23. The wilt percentage of a
particular variety in Table 23 should be interpreted in relationship to the wilt
percentages from the nearest susceptible and resistant checks. Severity of
fusarium wilt varies from year to year and also within the experimental area
within the same year. Therefore several years' data are necessary to realistically
characterize a variety's wilt resistance or susceptibility.

Production Costs:
The estimated costs of producing an acre of cotton in North Florida and break-
even prices are presented in Table 25.

Recommended Varieties:
Varieties recommended by the University of Florida, IFAS, Florida Extension Service
that should yield well under normal conditions are in alphabetical order as follows:

Chembred 1135 Deltapine Acala 90*
Chembred 1233 Deltapine DES119
Deltapine 41 Stoneville KC-311
Deltapine 50 Stoneville 453
Deltapine 51 Stoneville 506
Deltapine 5415 Stoneville LA887
I t Deltapine 5690
*To get the best performance from Deltapine Acala 90, care must be taken to prevent
excessive growth. A common error is to over-fertilize. On the heavier soils of
Florida, N fertilization should not exceed 50 lbs/A unless you have a history of
Deltapine Acala 90 on the soil. If too much N is applied, excessive plant growth
and poor boll retention will result. In addition, lower bolls will be more suscep-
tible to boll rotting organisms and hard lock.

If you have any doubt about a variety to grow in your area, contact your local
county extension agent for assistance.

Seed Sources;
Sources of seed for the variety trials at all locations are listed in Table 26.

Value of Florida Cotton;
The value of cotton lint and cottonseed produced in Florida in 1993 and other
selected years is shown in Table 27.
