Deltapine, Stoneville Top 2015 Varieties Planted Categories

From Cotton Grower Magazine – November 2015

 

Abbott and Costello’s famous comedy routine asked the same question, over and over again – “Who’s on first?”

Based on the results of the 2015 Cotton Varieties Planted report issued by USDA Agricultural Marketing Service in September, growers and seed companies might have varying opinions from region to region. Yes, there are fewer cotton acres this year to compete for. But one thing’s for sure – no one will be saying “I don’t know.”

Overall, Deltapine held its place as the most popular cottonseed brand planted in the U.S. this year, followed by Bayer CropScience FiberMax, Bayer CropScience Stoneville, PhytoGen, Americot, Dyna-Gro and All-Tex.

ST 4946GLB2 from Stoneville surpassed PhytoGen’s PHY 499 WRF as the top variety planted across the Cotton Belt.

2015 Varieties Graph Web

In total, Deltapine varieties accounted for 31.2% of the Upland cotton acres. The company’s varieties captured 50.1% percent of Southeastern cotton acres, 29.8% in the Mid-South, 23.7% in the Southwest and 24.9% percent in the Western states. Leading varieties noted in the report were DP 1044 B2RF, DP 1219 B2RF, DP 1252 B2RF and DP 1553 B2XF.

FiberMax varieties were planted on 21.6% of U.S. acres, accounting for 3.7% of Southeast acres, 1.0% in the Mid-South, 33.4% of Southwest acres and 28.3% percent in the West.

The Stoneville brand – led by ST 4946GLB2 – accounted for 16.9% of all Upland acres, including 44.7% of Mid-South acres. The varieties also claimed 13.4% of acres in the Southeast, 12.5% in the Southwest and 17.1% in the West.

PhytoGen captured 15.3% of the U.S. acres, including strong showings in the Southeast (28.2%) and the West (23.2%). The brand also captured 17.5% of Mid-South acres and 9.0% percent of Southwest acres. PhytoGen varieties also dominated U.S. Pima cotton acres, with two varieties – PHY 805 RF and PHY 811 RF – accounting for 73.4% of all Pima plantings.

Among other brands listed, Americot accounted for 6.4% of Upland acres, Dyna-Gro captured 4.9% of the acres, and All-Tex earned 2.3% of the acres.

The report again measured adoption of transgenic varieties containing insect and/or herbicide tolerant traits. Not surprisingly, those technologies were found on 98.8% of all Upland cotton acres in 2014 – with 100% reported in Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, Missouri, Mississippi, New Mexico and Tennessee.

The Varieties Planted report is based on informal surveys conducted by USDA’s Cotton and Tobacco Classing Offices with ginners, seed dealers, Extension agents and other key industry sources.
