Deltapine Seed Company, a separate operating division of Delta and Pine Land Company, is introducing four new conventional varieties each primariily adapted to a specific geography. The genetic backgrounds of these varieties point to the use of a diverse germplasm base. DP 2379 is a very high yielding stripper variety adapted to the stripper cotton growing areas of Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico. DP 5111 is a very early picker variety, adapted to the northern cotton growing areas of the Midsouth and Southeast. DP 5305 is a high yielding variety, with very high gin turnout, adapted to the Atlantic Coast cotton growing states. DP 5557 is a mid to full season variety adapted to Arizona, north and central Texas and the southern growing areas of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.
