El Dorado, a New High Quality Acala Cotton for the San Joaquin Valley

J.C. Palmer, H.B. Cooper, Jr., J.W. Pellow, K.E. McRae, D.M. Anderson


El Dorado is a new, high quality Acala cotton variety for California's San Joaquin Valley. Over four years of testing, El Dorado yields were equal to those of Maxxa (the SJV standard cotton variety) in the western and southern San Joaquin Valley. El Dorado was found to exhibit superior fiber and spinning properties that should make it an ideal cotton for use in today's wrinkle free garments. El Dorado planting seed will be readily available in 1996.
