The article reports that cotton quality is better in 2004 in Georgia. It informs that Deltapine 555 BG/RR, as it is officially known has caught on with growers because of its ability to produce a lot of cotton long after other varieties might have given up the ghost. It further informs that along with its reputation as the Timex "watch" of U.S. cotton, questions have also been raised about the Triple Nickel's fiber quality and whether those issues might offset some of the benefit of 555's phenomenal yield.
