FiberMax and Stoneville Release New Varieties for 2017

Cotton growers searching for the right variety to match to the right field now have four additional options in their decision-making process for 2017.

Bayer has added two FiberMax varieties and two Stoneville varieties to its high-yielding lineup of cottonseed bred to conquer pests and increase a grower’s profit opportunity.

“Our breeding focus is on providing the science growers need to complement their exemplary management skills,” says Jason Wistehuff, Bayer Product Manager for FiberMax and Stoneville cotton. “It’s a collaboration that growers can rely on to enhance their profit under today’s pest pressures. These new varieties are tangible examples of Bayer’s continuing commitment to cotton.”

In addition to high yield, the new varieties feature the primary characteristics and traits that are important to growers this year, such as bacterial blight resistance and worm-resistance traits. Each variety also includes Bayer’s exclusive herbicide-tolerant traits – GlyTol and Liberty Link.

Three of the varieties released this year include either the TwinLink or TwinLink Plus trait, both of which provide season-long Bt protection from a broad spectrum of major lepidopteran pests, including tobacco budworm, pink bollworm, cotton bollworm and beet armyworm. TwinLink is a two-gene trait, while TwinLink Plus is a three-gene trait that provides enhanced activity against bollworm and armyworm to help decrease the likelihood of supplemental applications to control worm pests.

New FiberMax varieties for 2017 are:

  • FM 1888GL. An early/medium maturity variety that offers outstanding yield potential and consistent performance in the Texas High Plains. FM 1888GL offers bacterial blight resistance in conjunction with the GlyTol and LibertyLink weed control traits. This variety starts strong with great early season vigor, features good storm tolerance to hold the bolls, and finishes with high gin turnout and great fiber quality.
  • FM 1953GLTP. An early/medium maturity GlyTol LibertyLink TwinLink Plus variety that provides bacterial blight resistance and enhanced protection against bollworm and fall armyworm. FM 1953GLTP has shown excellent yield potential and fiber quality across a wide range of environments. Bred for the South Texas growing environment, this variety also has shown a wide adaptation for the Rolling Plains, Eastern Texas and Oklahoma.

New Stoneville varieties for 2017 are:

  • ST 5020GLT. A medium maturity GlyTol Liberty Link TwinLink variety that delivers bacterial blight resistance in the best fiber package available in a Stoneville variety. Bred for the Eastern Cotton Belt – including the Southeast, Delta and Mid-Atlantic – ST 5020GLT offers excellent early season vigor and strong yield potential, with stable yield and fiber quality across a wide range of environments.
  • ST 5517GLTP. A later medium maturity variety with the three-gene Bt technology of TwinLink Plus, ST 5517GLTP provides excellent early season vigor and standability, bacterial blight resistance and good storm tolerance. Growers can look to this variety for exceptional yield potential and fiber quality across a wide range of environments – from Virginia to the Rolling Plains of Texas and Oklahoma.

In addition to the four new varieties for 2017, FiberMax and Stoneville continue to offer a stellar lineup of varieties that offer the high yield, premium quality, herbicide tolerance and disease and insect resistance growers need to choose the right seed for the right field.
