Webcast Focuses on Value of Cotton Variety Selection

Variety selection is one of the most important factors impacting the overall growing potential of a cotton production system, with incorrect or uninformed decisions often proving very costly.

A new webcast – titled “What Does it Cost to Choose the Wrong Cotton Variety?” – has been added to the Focus on Cotton online series from the Plant Management Network and Cotton Incorporated.

This 25-minute talk by Guy D. Collins, associate professor and Extension cotton specialist at North Carolina State University, was developed to help cotton growers, consultants, and other industry experts understand how often and to what severity selecting the wrong variety can impact overall yield, fiber quality, and profits.

During the presentation, Collins provides information to help users identify yield limiting factors critical for variety selection; properly assess variety comparison data and field observations; and quantify, in economic terms, the importance of variety decisions.

This webcast is part of the Focus on Cotton series made available by the Plant Management Network and Cotton Incorporated. The Focus on Cotton series contains more than 40 webcasts on various aspects of cotton crop management, including agronomic practices, crop protection and ag engineering. The presentations are accessible online at any time.

The resource also features a newly improved Cotton Extension Search tool, where users can conveniently search for extension resources across all U.S. land-grant universities serving cotton producers.
