The results of the 2017 Replicated Agronomic Cotton Evaluations (or RACE) Trials for the Texas High Plains are now available online.
These trials cover both the Northern and Southern High Plains regions and provide information critical to cotton production in these regions, including yield, fiber quality and maturity measurements.
The results are divided into two sections:
- Pooled data and individual results of the 13 trials in the Southern High Plains
- Data relating to the six Northern High Plains RACE Trials, plus supplemental data on a row spacing trial
Writing in the Texas Row Crop Newsletter, AgriLife Extension cotton specialists Seth Byrd and Jourdan Bell said, “These results can be a useful tool – when combined with experience and other variety data from industry or research and extension personnel regarding variety response to factors such as irrigation, disease pressure or nematodes – to aid producers in making informed decisions on variety selection and placement.”
