Cotton Variety Selection for 2017
1-16-17
Looking at variety results this week shows that we have some good choices that include a mix of varieties that have been around for several years to some brand new varieties that probably shouldn’t get many acres but definitely need to be looked at.  We used to want three years of data before moving out strong to a variety and now, we will leave money on the table if we don’t start to pick out some promising varieties quicker than that.  Nevertheless, I still believe we need at least 2 years.  To bring home the point of this you only have to look at the list of varieties we had last year that looked promising with only one year of data.  Only half of those varieties have good two year data.  Another key point to make, is that the varieties that are basically a “reincarnation” of a more familiar variety just with some added genes for improved technology should be treated like a new variety.  I made that point last week and as I have combed through the data, again, the newer versions of older varieties are equal to the original version only about a third of the time.  The good news is that a third of the time, the new version looks better.  Of course that means that a third of the time, the new one is not as good.  Ultimately, if it has a new number, it is a new variety.
