The annual cotton maturity guide has been updated for 2014.  Cotton is unique with respect to maturity indices, especially compared to commonly grown grain crops.  Generally speaking, the earliest maturing cotton varieties differ from the latest maturing cotton varieties by 10 – 14 days with respect to maturity.  However, keep in mind that many factors can impact cotton maturity including (but not limited to):  nitrogen fertility, fruit retention, weather conditions, irrigation practices as well as others.

The attached guide is intended for use as a tool when making variety selection decisions.  Although yield is the overriding factor when selecting a variety, maturity is important to consider when developing insect management plans, harvest planning, etc.
