Cotton Variety Demo 2012

On-farm crop demonstrations are used to show how LSU AgCenter recommendations perform on producer’s farms. Cooperating producers and their neighbors can view these demonstrations throughout a growing season and review the final harvest data. This information along with other LSU AgCenter publications is used by producers to make production decisions for the next year.
