News, events, and happenings in Colquitt County agriculture.

Dr. Camp Hand showed data about mixing cotton varieties during his during his presentation yesterday at the Colquitt County Cotton Production Meeting (3/10/22). He called it “Jeremiah’s Mix.” One of the more consistently high yielding and widely planted varieties has been DP 1646 B2XF. Recently, there has been increased grower interest in seeing how this high yielding variety would do when mixed with one of the newer DeltapineĀ® releases, DP 2038 B3XF. This interest stems from the thought that a high quality premium from DP 1646 B2XF would mix well with the high yielding DP 2038 B3XF. Additionally, it is thought DP 2038 B3XF would help mitigate losses from DP 1646 B2XF lodging. Our goal in this research was to assess these two varieties mixed together at six different locations across the South Georgia cotton belt. Below is information from his presentation yesterday in Colquitt County.

Also more information about this project was presented during the poster session at the 2022 Beltwide Cotton conference. This project involved a number of county Extension agents who are listed on the poster.
