Each year the Mississippi State University Extension Service conducts numerous on-farm variety trials in cotton and other crops.  These data are intended to complement small plot official variety trial (OVT) data that are also generated by Mississippi State University personnel.  The on-farm variety trial program in cotton is conducted using 10 varieties with two replications of each variety at a given location.  MSU personnel assist with planting the trials and the cooperating grower is allowed to manage each trial as they see necessary.  At harvest, MSU provides equipment to weigh each plot as well as collect seed cotton that is to be ginned and submitted for fiber quality analysis.  Ginning is conducted by staff at the West Tennessee Research and Education Center in Jackson, TN.

Gratitude is expressed to each cooperating company and grower.  Without these people, the on-farm variety trial program would not be possible.  Data from cotton trials conducted in 2013 is available by clicking the link below.
