Drumroll please… New Cotton Varieties

January 6, 2010

It has been a long time since I have had Basic Crop Science. After listening to the wonderful folks who develop our varieties, I realize I have forgotten a lot.

 Listed below, are all the new varieties and a couple of major points the speakers made on each variety.

Let me clarify that I was unable to take down all the data; some of the bulleted lists are much shorter for some varieties than others. I highly encourage if you are interested in a certain variety, visit the company’s website or contact the company directly.
