A good trial that was planted in November and partially missed the heat through flowering due to the lateness of the crop. Good rain in February produced a good boll load of 90-120 bolls/m on double skip which yielded very well. Boll weight was also good at 2.3 grams/boll. Sicot 746B3F performed the strongest in the trial and apart from some above average microanire, fibre quality was very good.
