New Cotton Varieties on the Horizon

Cotton growers are looking forward to some new varieties coming in the near future, including the transition to a brand new chemistry not currently used in cotton.

“It’s huge, because it brings forward a new tool for them to use in their program right now that they don’t currently have,” said Dr. Fred Moore, BASF Principal Trait Development Manager for Cotton.

Moore was speaking of the addition of the trait with HPPD tolerance. He said growers participating in the Agronomic Performance Trials (APT) program are important partners in terms of testing new varieties and understanding expectations at the farm level. He presented at the BASF APT Summit, held just prior to the 2019 Beltwide Cotton Conferences.
