VARIETY TRIALS OF UPLAND COTTON

Hugh A. Peacock-/

We have grown a cotton variety trial at WFREC, Jay for the last 16 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 1995 and
averages over several years are included in this report. Also included are results
from variety trials grown in Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Escambia, Alachua, and St.
Johns counties; WFREC, Jay, and NFREC, Quincy; Fairhope, Headland, and Monroeville,
Alabama; 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 WFREC, Jay, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Fairhope, Headland, Monroeville, and
Tifton, were harvested by a mechanical spindle picker and weighed. 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 multiplying
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 all tests, this is the fiber length measured with the HVI instrument
and approximates classer's staple.

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 higher the number the stronger the fiber.

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.

Agricultural Sciences, WFREC, Jay.

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. vasinfectum 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 will 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 percent-
age of the test mean, that is, the coefficient of variation (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 Signifi-
cance Difference (LSD05).

Thirty-six cotton varieties were tested in a single trial replicated four times in
1995 on a Red Bay sandy loam to determine yield. All varieties were planted 16 May
at the rate of 15 lbs/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 150 lbs/acre on 21 June.
On 12 June 200 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 and 0.5 lb/acre B once. Stand was thinned
to 3-4 plants/foot of row. No supplemental water was applied. Plots were harvested
14 November. Yields were only fair for most varieties. The season started off very
well but with the usual problems from worms and aphids. However, in many fields,
beet armyworms became uncontrollable. Two hurricanes after the crop began to open
caused part of the crop to be lost to both "hardlock" and being blown out of the
boll. Rainfall (Table 1) received was 20 inches more than the 47-year average.
The overall mean for the test grown at WFREC was 751 lbs lint per acre, about 338
lbs less than in 1994. The data on yield and boll size from the test are shown in
Table 2. The highest yield iwas from Suregrow 404 followed closely by Deltapine
5415 and Suregrow 125.

Data on yield at WFREC, Jay in 1995 along with 2-, 3-, 4-, 5-, and 6-yr. average
yields are shown in Table 3. The highest yielding variety of varieties grown 3
years was. Deltapine 5415 followed by MD51ne, Deltapine 50, and Deltapine 5690; of
varieties grown 6 years, the highest yielding was Deltapine 5415 followed closely
by Deltapine 5690, Deltapine 51, and Deltapine DES119.

Statewide Tests;
Data on yield of several cotton varieties grown at several locations in north and
central Florida are presented in Table 4. The average highest yielding variety
from 2 Santa Rosa county locations was Stoneville 474 followed by Chembred 232.


-2-








The highest yielding variety planted at all Florida locations was Deltapine 5415
followed by Deltapine 20 and Stoneville 474. Highest yielding variety from any
test was Stoneville 453 from Okaloosa county, (1193 lbs lint/acre).

The 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995 and 4-year average yield of cotton varieties grown in
all Florida locations is given in Table 5. Average highest yield from all loca-
tions for the 4 years was from MD51ne followed by Deltapine 5415.

New Strains Test:
Data on yield of several new strains grown at WFREC, Jay are shown in Table 6.
Deltapine NuCotton 33B was highest in yield among the new entries. Deltapine
NuCotton 33B has the BollgardM gene from Monsanto which gives the variety the
ability to kill cotton bollworms and tobacco budworms that feed on the plants.

Georgia Tests;
Data on yield and other characteristics of cotton varieties grown at Tifton and
Plains, GA are presented in Tables 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18,
19, 20, 21, 22, 23, and 24. Length, strength, and micronaire values for each
variety in these tests should be the values that could be expected from those
same varieties grown in north Florida.

Yields from the variety test of early maturing varieties grown at Tifton was
excellent. The overall mean was 1689 Ibs/acre lint. The highest yielding variety
was Suregrow 501 followed closely by Stoneville 474 (Table 7).

Yields from the variety test of late maturing varieties was excellent with the
overall mean yield of the test 1779 lbs/acre lint. The highest yielding variety
was Hartz 1560 followed closely by Hyperformer HS44 (Table 8).

The 3-year average performance of early maturing varieties grown at Tifton is
presented in Table 9. Suregrow 501 was highest in average performance followed
by Stoneville 474.

The 3-year average performance of late maturing varieties grown at Tifton is
presented in Table 10. The highest yielding variety was Deltapine 5415 followed
closely by Stoneville LA887.

are presented in Table 34. Highest yield of varieties grown 3 years was from
Stoneville 474 followed by Suregrow 125.

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 35. 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 (Meloidogyne 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,
because 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
determined 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 percentt 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 36 is a summary of the data presented in Table 35. The wilt percentage of a
particular variety in Table 35 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.

Table 37 is a summary of the fusarium wilt test grown at Tallassee, AL for the
period 1988 through 1995 with averages for varieties grown one or more years.

Table 38 presents the growing season rainfall at Alabama locations for the period
1993 through 1995.

Table 39 presents the soil types for the cotton variety tests at Monroeville,
Headland, and Fairhope, AL.

Production Costs:
The estimated costs of producing an acre of cotton in north Florida and break-even
prices are.presented in Table 40.

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:
Deltapine 50 Hyperformer HS46
Deltapine 51 MD51ne
Deltapine DES119 Stoneville KC-311
Deltapine 5415 Stoneville 453
Deltapine 5690 Stoneville LA887
Deltapine Acala 90*
*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.,

Traits of the varieties recommended for planting in Florida are listed in Table 41.


-5-









The varieties of Bt cotton that will be available for planting in 1996 are "NUCOTN
33B" and "NUCOTN 35B" to be marketed by Delta and Pine Land Company. NUCOTN 33B is
a medium maturing, smooth leaf variety that has its parentage through DPL-5415.
Reports indicate that the quality of NUCOTN 33B will be similar while seed size
and vigor will be increased compared to its parents. NUCOTN 35B is a medium to
full season, smooth leaf variety that is very close to its parent, DPL-5690. "BXN"
or bromoxynil-resistant cotton will be marketed in 1996 by Stoneville Pedigreed
Seed Company under the trade name "BXN-57". It is a medium maturing, hairy leaf
variety that is similar in maturity to Stoneville LA887. None of the Chembred
cotton varieties will be available for planting in 1996. American Cyanamid, Owner
of Chembred, Inc., has made a decision to exit the cotton seed market.

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