The University of Arizona
Upland Regional Variety Trials - 2001
YAC test - Yuma Ag Center, Yuma County, Elevation=105
(NOTE: The MAC full season and SAC tests are part of the National Ctton Variety Testing Program)
Experimental Design: Entries will be arranged in a randomized complete block design with four or five replications. Three check varieties (NuCOTN 33B, SG747, and STV474) will be placed in all five tests. Plots will be four rows wide, 36-40 inches apart and about 40 ft. in length (note: at SAC we use two-row plots due to space limitations). Planting rates will be about 20-25 lbs/A and all plots will be hand-thinned to a final stand of 3 plants per foot. Conventional cultural practices appropriate for the region will be followed for each test. Boll samples will be hand harvested from each replication to determine lint percent, boll size, and fiber properties. Mature plant height will be measured for each plot. The middle two rows of each plot will be machine picked to determine seed cotton yields. Lint yields will be calculated from lint percent and seed cotton yields.
The test at Yuma and the Early-season test at Maricopa are designed for early maturing varieties. The MAC full-season test is designed for full-season varieties. The test at Marana may experience Verticillium wilt infestations.
Data summary: Complete results will be summarized and included in the 2001 University of Arizona Cotton Report. Preliminary reports will be prepared in January of 2001.
National Standards: Four National Standards (Acala 1517-99, SG747, NuCotton 33B, and All-Tex Atlas) will be included in the MAC-full season, and Safford Tests.
Cost: $100 per entry per location.
