New FiberMax and Stoneville Varieties for 2015 Feature GLT Technology

Bayer CropScience has announced four new FiberMax and Stoneville cotton varieties for the 2015 season that are bred to help growers overcome major production challenges in their regions.

All four new varieties feature the GlyTol LibertyLink TwinLink (GLT) technology to help growers fight weed and worm pests found in every region of the Cotton Belt. GlyTol LibertyLink technology gives growers full tolerance to over-the-top application of Liberty herbicide and glyphosate to manage tough-to-control weeds. TwinLink provides two Bt genes for season-long protection against lepidopteran pests, such as cotton bollworm.

Jeff Brehmer, U.S. product manager for FiberMax and Stoneville, said Bayer CropScience begins variety development by asking what challenges growers face that the company can address with its cottonseed varieties. Researchers, breeders and agronomists then work together to develop varieties that help growers improve fiber quality, achieve higher yields and increase profits.

“We’re excited to announce these new FiberMax and Stoneville varieties for 2015, because they expand our current variety portfolio and help address challenges to cotton production that growers face on their farms,” Brehmer said. “U.S. cotton growers know how to produce a crop in challenging, adverse conditions, and we want to offer them new tools to help maximize their profit potential.”

New FiberMax varieties available for 2015 are:

FM 1900GLT, which offers the newest FiberMax germplasm for the High Plains and Rolling Plains of the Southwest for growers who look for excellent storm tolerance, high yields and great fiber quality. FM 1900GLT has a slightly earlier maturity than FM 2484B2F with improved micronaire and similar One Ton Club yield potential. It is a GLT variety with full tolerance to Liberty herbicide and glyphosate, plus broad-spectrum lepidopteran insect protection with two Bt genes.

FM 2007GLT, a new variety bred specifically for the harsh South Texas growing environment, but with wide adaptation for the Rolling Plains. It is an early-medium maturity GLT variety with excellent water-use efficiency and storm tolerance to help growers overcome challenging weather conditions in the Texas Coastal Bend. It is easy to manage with lower rates of plant growth regulator and offers excellent yields and fiber quality.

New 2015 Stoneville varieties are:

ST 5115GLT, which gives Mid-South, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast growers a variety that responds well to irrigation and has a high lint turnout. It has excellent seedling vigor, providing an edge for a geography that sometimes faces cool, wet springs. ST 5115GLT also offers GLT technology for full tolerance to Liberty herbicide and glyphosate, plus broad-spectrum lepidopteran insect protection with two Bt genes.

ST 6182GLT, a full-season variety bred for the Southeast, South Delta, Southeastern Texas and Mid-Atlantic regions with the ability to fight through long, unpredictable growing seasons and deliver high lint turnout. ST 6182GLT is well adapted for dryland and irrigated acres on light or heavy soils, which benefits Southeastern growers who often have multiple soil types in one field. It also offers GLT technology to protect cotton fields against tough-to-control weeds and lepidopteran pests.

These new FiberMax and Stoneville varieties have been tested by Bayer CropScience regional cotton agronomists in on-farm CAP trials across the Cotton Belt to help identify potential new varieties and compare performance to current varieties. Bayer agronomists use this trial data to provide agronomic recommendations to help growers maximize their yield, quality and profitability.

“When we bring new FiberMax and Stoneville varieties to growers, our goal is to provide solutions to their cotton production challenges with varieties that complement our current cottonseed portfolio,” Brehmer said.

“In the last four years, Bayer CropScience has brought more cotton trait packages to the grower than any other company, and our researchers and breeders continue to improve varieties for water-use efficiency, nematode tolerance and fiber characteristics for more profitable cotton production.”
