The tech-trait diversity in the top performers again highlights the excellent yield potential, stability and fiber quality currently available in commercial cultivars regardless of tech platform. Trial results reported from the 2018 season include 58 varieties entered into 7 Official Variety Trials (OVTs) and 18 varieties entered into 10 County Standard Trials (CSTs). Both OVTs and CSTs were scattered throughout TN’s cotton producing counties. Additionally, in-season plant measurements and multi-year yield averages were reported for the OVTs.
We will be releasing results from a June planted OVT later this winter, so keep an eye out for those results on this blog.
Special thanks to all those who participated and/or contributed to the program during the 2018 growing season, and look forward to seeing many of you during our 2019 meetings.
