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 conducted on units of the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station by Experiment Station personnel. Cultural practices are those generally recommended by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System to producers. Data are reported on irrigated tests at Belle Mina and Headland. No other tests received scheduled supplemental irrigation. Every effort is made to test the varieties and present the results in an unbiased manner.
