AgrEvo Cotton Seed International (ACSI) announces the releases of five new picker type cottons under the Brand name FiberMax. These five varieties are selections from the CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) breeding program. Over the past two seasons these varieties have been selected from twenty-eight introductions as having superior yield and fiber quality. Performance tests in 1996 (fifteen) and 1997 (more than seventy) have highlighted the yield and fiber quality of these varieties. Two of the varieties have okra leaf and three have normal leaf shape. All are smooth leaf varieties.
