The Alabama Cotton Variety Test is a continuing evaluation of available cotton varieties from private companies and state agricultural experiment stations. Breeding lines that are likely to be released as varieties are also- tested. Tests are usually conducted on units of the Agricultural Experiment Station by Experiment Station personnel. In 1981, the Winfield test was- planted on a private farm near the Upper Coastal Plain Substation.  Cultural practices are those generally recommended by Auburn University to
farmers. Every effort is made to test the varieties and present the data in an unbiased manner.
