From Cotton Grower Magazine – November 2016
Moving into their second year as part of Crop Protection Services, the All-Tex and Dyna-Gro brands are bringing an aggressive portfolio of new varieties to the cotton market – not just in their bread and butter Southwest geography, but also new mid and full season varieties for the Mid-South and Southeast.
“The new B2XF varieties we have are light years ahead of what we were offering,” says Shawn Carter, seed agronomist for the company’s South Plains Region.
During the latest trait integression into existing germplasm, the company saw substantial gains in yield, quality, drought tolerance and other factors. “It just changed those varieties for the good,” adds Carter.
Dyna-Gro is also rolling out a new mid-to-full maturity variety featuring Bayer’s GLT technology. “It’s a totally different look and keeps us involved in any market that comes our way,” states Carter.
The All-Tex/Dyna-Gro line-up for 2017 looks like this:
