2022 Variety Selection based on Strategies and Farm Characteristics.
1-19-22
At the most basic level, variety selection has generally been an exercise of looking at test plot performance for 1 to 3 years across a given region.  Then picking the top few varieties to plant the next year.    Our Human Nature and emotion make us want to choose the variety that was best last year, but our experience and intellect tell us to use more than one year performance.  This is what the Variety Report Card (in my biased opinion) is the best at doing of any single tool available.  If you plant varieties that have at least 2 years of data in the top 10 or 12, you probably won’t make a mistake.
HOWEVER, I believe for that ultimate cotton success, we must dig deeper and look at varieties that suit our individual situation.
A big weakness of just picking the best 3 for the last few years is that you are selecting very similar varieties that are in the top because of the way the growing seasons for the last couple of years have been.   To diversify, you might have to investigate other characteristics that favor a variety that might show up in 2022 differently than 2020 & 2021.
 
The major criteria for variety characteristics needed in order of importance are:

  1. Yield covers up everything else.  The rest of the characteristics help fine tune
  2. Growth characteristics fit different situations (soils, planting date, High management varieties vs the easier to grow varieties)
  3. Know the Cool and Warm germ for the seed lots available to you and kick out anything not at the base standard.  This information is NOT on the bag.  If seed quality is compromised, then yield is more likely to be compromised which breaks the most important criteria.
  4. Grade / deductions.  1 cent in price equals 5 pounds of cotton.  The payoff for your effort will be focusing on Yield (no cutting corners on variety, fertility, pest management, weeds, etc.)
