This article reports that new cotton varieties are available for 2005. Mike Jones, Clemson University Extension cotton specialist advises to study the data, tempering that data with local experience, spreading risks over varieties, maturity and planting dates; not over-buying technology; and the purchase of quality seed. Jones told growers at the recent Southeast Cotton Conference that he's encouraged by data that show growers gravitating toward higher-yielding varieties over the past five years. In 1999, only the top 10 yielding varieties in Official Variety Tests had a half percentage point of the market. In 2004, the top 10 yielders had 73.5 percent market share.
