2017 Cotton Variety Selection

Variety selection is one of the most important decisions a cotton producer makes each year. Since 2010, UGA Extension Cotton Agronomists and County Extension Agents have evaluated the performance of cotton varieties in an on-farm program set up to deliver information to help producers make variety selection decisions.  Each year, a set of varieties are evaluated in numerous on-farm, replicated trials across Georgia.  These varieties are considered to be “the best of the best” and varieties that have shown potential in earlier testing (either by industry or UGA) and could be planted to significant acreage in the following growing season.  This program is set up to evaluate variety performance across a diverse set of environments in order to make more informed variety selection decisions.
