Deltapine claims improved fiber quality, stable high-yield performance and a better weed control system being among the solutions being brought to market with four new Deltapine Class of 16 cotton varieties.
The Deltapine Class of 16 cotton varieties were proven to perform by farmers who grew them in large-acre plots under their own management systems. Their evaluation and feedback were important to the selection of lines for commercial advancement.
"What we're most proud about with the Class of 16 is that it brings to the market not only varieties with improved yield potential over existing commercial lines, but also excellent fiber quality over and above many existing commercial lines today, said Keylon Gholston, Deltapine product manager. "These four Bollgard II XtendFlex cotton varieties raise the bar on yield and fiber quality potential across early-maturity, mid-maturity and mid- to full-maturity markets. The technology allows growers to be more effective and flexible with their weed control.
The Deltapine four new class of 16 cotton varieties are: DP 1646 B2XF, DP 1639 B2XF, DP 1614 B2XF, DP 1612 B2XF.
