Each year, scientists with the LSU AgCenter evaluate cotton varieties at four locations that are representative of Louisiana’s cotton producing regions. The official variety tests are conducted at the LSU AgCenter’s Red River Research Station near Bossier City, Dean Lee Research Station near Alexandria, Macon Ridge Research Station near Winnsboro and Northeast Research Station near St. Joseph. Varieties are managed using practices that follow LSU AgCenter recommendations and demonstrate commercial operations as closely as possible. All entries within a trial are replicated four or five times, and data is compiled for average performance after one or two years of testing.
