A Grower's Perspective

Frank Mitchener


The first year observations of growing several thousand acres of BT cotton (Deltapine NuCOTN 33B) as compared to non BT cotton (DP 5409) comparing insect control methods and costs.

During 1995 I grew Deltapine NuCOTN 33B on approximately 70% of my cotton acreage. This variety contains the BollgardTM gene from Monsanto. This planting was a part of Deltapine's 36,000 acres of seed production allowed by the EPA to reproduce BT seed to be released for the 1996 crop year. NuCOTN 33B was developed by back crossing DP 5415 to Coker 312 BT.
