Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Experiments were conducted in Clayton and Goldsboro, NC and Jackson and Milan, TN in 1997 and 1998 to evaluate weed control, cotton tolerance, and lint yield of new transgenic cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) varieties (BXN and Roundup-Ready) and a standard non-transgenic variety, Stoneville 474. The BXN variety used in all locations was BXN 47, while the Roundup-Ready varieties were Paymaster 1220RR, Paymaster 1330RR, and Deltapine 5415RR. Weed-free checks were included for the non-transgenic variety, the BXN variety, and the Roundup-Ready variety at each location to allow direct comparison of the yield potential for each variety. These weed-free plots received a preemergence (PRE) application of Prowl at 39 fl. oz./A plus Cotoran at 1 qt/A in NC and 2.4 pt/A in TN. These plots were maintained weed free by additional hand weedings and hand hoeings as needed.
