Variety selection is perhaps the season's most important and yet most difficult decision. A poor variety selection decision is not easily overcome. Choose varieties with the genetic potential for higher yield and fiber quality. Plant more than one variety and consider specific traits and crop maturity after yield and quality. Try new varieties on a limited acreage to see how they perform on your farm. The National Cotton Council offers resources to help with that decision at www.cotton.org/tech/physiology/index.cfm.
