Each year, scientists with the Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station evaluate cotton varieties at the Dean Lee Research Station at Alexandria, Red River Research Station at Bossier City, Northeast Research Station at St. Joseph and Macon Ridge Research Station at Winnsboto. Varieties are grown using only practices recommended for producing nontransgenic varieties. Data from this research are used to determine recomĀ­mended varieties based on yield. Yields presented in the tables are the average yields for 1997-99 (Tables 1-6). Recommended varieties for each location (Tables 1-6), are indicated by bold type. A variety is recommended when its three-year average yield is 90% or more of the three-year average of the three top yielding varieties. Yield values of other varieties ( those not boldfaced) are included for comparative purposes only and are not recommended by the LSU Agricultural Center's Cooperative Extension Service.

This information accurately reflects the performance of varieties evaluated at the experiment stations, but performance may vary on individual farms because of soil type, environment and other factors. Producers should select recommended varieties tested at the location most representative of their farms. While these varieties are separated based on yield, producers should also consider other factors presented in this publication (pest resistance, fiber quality, earliness, etc.) when making their selections.
