The 2014 Tennessee Cotton Variety Trial Results publication is now available online.
This new document contains detailed results from all harvested trials in the 2014 University of Tennessee Cotton Variety Testing program, and provides additional information to support the 2015 Tennessee Cotton Variety Guide released in mid-December.
“The tech-trait diversity in the top performers highlights the excellent yield potential, stability and fiber quality currently available in commercial cultivars, regardless of tech platform,” stated Tyson Raper, University of Tennessee cotton and small grains specialist. “Given many of these currently available varieties have been moved forward into new tech-trait platforms, it appears producers will be deciding between several very viable options for many years to come.”
Trial results reported from the 2014 season include four Official Variety Trials (OVTs) and eleven County Standard Trials (CSTs) scattered throughout Tennessee’s cotton-producing counties. Additionally, in-season plant measurements were reported for the OVTs, and multi-year averages were calculated and included for both the OVTs and CSTs.
