This trial was a single skip irrigated trial that was planted in November and progressed srtongly throughout the season. The lateral growth across the skip was very good with good boll numbers 3 and 4 wide on some laterals.
The trial matured very late due to the high boll numbers and the lateral and top fruit trying to open under cooling autumn conditions.
The crop had over 180 bolls/m and yielded very well on single skip. Sicot 748B3F was the pick of the varieties.
