BXN 47 - a New Look at the Buctril System

C. B. Guy


Buctril (bromoxynil) tolerance has been commercially available in varieties that have not performed well in the Mid-South, BXN 57 and 58. Better varieties will be available in 1998, BXN 47 and BG 4740. BXN 47 and BG 4740 are derived from Stoneville 474. Stoneville 474 has proven to be a high yielding variety for many Mid-South cotton growers. In University variety tests, BXN 47 has yielded equal to Stoneville 474. Stoneville 474 is an early season variety with vigorous growth, and responds well to Pix (mepiquat chloride). Stoneville 474 and BXN 47 are not smooth leaf varieties, therefore, proper termination will be needed to prevent trash (leaf content) in ginned lint. BXN 47 is one to two days later than Stoneville 474 and has slightly lower micronaire. Both have sound agronomic traits, but like any variety they will not be perfect for every field or grower.
