Seed Companies Ready For Business

No matter what year it is, U.S. cotton producers always seem to have multiple options when it comes to making decisions on what seed varieties they’ll plant. The 2010 production season won’t be any different.

Here are some updates from several companies:

DELTAPINE

As expected, Monsanto hopes to raise yield potential with its Deltapine Class of ‘10 varieties. Thirteen variety candidates are being evaluated this season by more than 140 commercial farmers across the Belt. The Class of ‘10 will be introduced by name in December with a more formal introduction at the Beltwide Cotton Conferences.

For more variety information, producers should go to www.cottoncommunity.com.


BAYER CROPSCIENCE

The company will announce several additional new varieties at the Beltwide Cotton Conferences. The specific traits of those varieties won’t be known until data has been collected from company trials and Official Variety Trials (OVTs). Of the current offerings, several will be Glytol varieties for the High Plains.

New Varieties:
FM 9101GT
FM 9103GT

AMERICOT

Americot’s two newest NexGen varieties have raised expectations for Southwest producers, accor-ding to company officials.

This company will again offer four varieties in 2010, just as it did in 2009. All four varieties are geared toward Pima producers in the San Joaquin Valley.
