- Selected 1,100 Acala Cotton Lines to be screened.
- Prepared seed (ginned, delinted, treated, and packaged) for planting.
- Planted seed in multiple testing locations.
- Took multiple stand evaluations to determine the degree of FOV-4 damage.
Findings to Date
- The year started off well with good stands on all Acala Lines.
- Upon the completion of stand evaluations, we eliminated over 800 Acala Lines as being susceptible to FOV-4.
Work to Be Completed
- Determine the degree of vascular staining in each Acala Line that has not already been eliminated from stand evaluations.
- Rate each Acala Line based on productivity.
- Assemble data and analysis throughout the year.
- Complete Final Report.
