SAVANNAH, Ga. (December 9, 2017) - Marking the 10th year of the New Product Evaluator (NPE) Program, Deltapine cotton announced today the addition of seven new varieties to its lineup, including the full commercial launch of five Bollgard 3 XtendFlex cotton varieties as part of the Class of 18.

The Class of 18 is the 10th class of new, commercial varieties to come out of the NPE Program. The varieties were tested and proven to perform at a high level by select growers participating in the program from across every region of the Cotton Belt, delivering more strong cotton varieties to market.

'This 10th NPE Program class is significant, as it marks the full commercial launch of the first Deltapine Bollgard 3 XtendFlex cotton varieties,' said Keylon Gholston, Deltapine Cotton Product Manager. 'These varieties are unique because they combine the highest-performing genetics with the best weed control and next-generation worm control technologies.'

Bollgard 3 contains the protein called Vip3A, which provides a third mode of action in addition to the Cry1Ac and Cry2Ab Bt proteins found in Genuity Bollgard II technology. The introduction provides growers with three unique proteins and modes of action, helping deliver better insect control while increasing the longevity of the technology. Cotton with XtendFlex technology is tolerant to glyphosate, glufosinate and dicamba, which provides added choice and flexibility to apply multiple combinations of these three herbicides pre- and/or post-plant for a very effective weed management system.

The Class of 18, which features five new Bollgard 3 XtendFlex varieties, includes:

  • DP 1820 B3XF - An early-to-mid maturity variety exhibiting excellent fiber length, micronaire, and strength along with excellent yield potential. Provides a good complement to DP 1518 B2XF in northern markets and to DP 1612 B2XF in the rolling plains.
  • DP 1835 B3XF - A mid-maturity variety recommended for south Texas, the lower Mid-south and the Carolinas, this variety provides improved fiber length compared to DP 1725 B2XF.
  • DP 1840 B3XF - A variety bred for the Southeast and Carolinas offering yield potential and fiber length comparable to DP 1725 B2XF and improved fiber length, micronaire, and strength compared to DP 1538 B2XF. Mid-to-full maturity variety exhibiting strong growth very similar to DP 1538 B2XF.
  • DP 1845 B3XF - Displays excellent yield, quality, and fiber properties for Texas and the lower Mid-south. Has bacterial blight resistance. Good companion variety to DP 1646 B2XF.
  • DP 1851 B3XF - This full-season variety with partial bacterial blight resistance also exhibits an excellent combination of yield and fiber quality. Ideal for the Southeast and lower Mid-south.
  • DP 1822 XF - Developed for West Texas, this variety has demonstrated good tough acre performance while offering bacterial blight resistance. An early-to-mid maturity variety.
  • DP 1823NR B2XF - An early-to-mid maturity variety with excellent fiber length and low micronaire. Ideal for the upper Mid-south region.

This class is being recognized by growers because it brings important technologies to market, such as Bollgard 3 XtendFlex via varieties that also offer the high yield and premium fiber quality growers have become accustomed to from Deltapine.

'These new varieties are giving growers everything they've asked of the cotton breeders,' said Brian Hlavinka, a 10-year NPE grower from East Bernard, Texas, who planted new Bollgard 3 varieties this past season (DP 1835 B3XF and DP 1845 B3XF). 'They're providing a combination of high yield and good fiber quality. In the 10 years of the NPE Program, we've seen varieties getting better and better and this Class of 18 fits right into that trend, including providing better worm and weed control, through Bollgard 3 and XtendFlex technologies. I'm going to plant a higher percentage of my acres than usual with these Class of 18 varieties because I'm so impressed with them.'

Another 10-year NPE grower, Johnny Griffin, of Lewiston Woodville, North Carolina, agrees that the Deltapine Class of 18 varieties fit with the high-yielding, premium fiber quality products commercialized through the program over the past few years, such as DP 1646 B2XF.

'The varieties we planted compared favorably to DP 1646 B2XF and had excellent micronaire, high strength, a long staple length and good uniformity,' said Griffin, who evaluated both DP 1820 B3XF and DP 1835 B3XF in his NPE plot this past season. 'I wouldn't hesitate to plant them this coming season and would encourage growers to try them next season. It's also important to have a tool like Bollgard 3 available because of the worm pressure we've had in recent years.'

The Deltapine Class of 18 varieties will be available for the 2018 planting season and the brand is committed to developing a strong seed supply this coming year in support of the new Bollgard 3 technology and to provide options to growers across the Cotton Belt.
