    Eight Bollgard 3 XtendFlex varieties are part of the Deltapine New Product Evaluator (NPE) program this season.

    Growers will manage the plots using their own practices in irrigated and non-irrigated fields in various soil types and growing conditions. Feedback from NPE growers will help determine which Deltapine varieties to commercialize.

    The NPE varieties include these traits:

    • Stacked tolerances to both root-knot and reniform nematodes
    • Bacterial blight resistance
    • Dryland yield potential above current Deltapine DryTough varieties
    • Demonstrated high-yield potential vs. leading commercial lines DP 1646 B2XF and Deltapine Class of ’20

    One variety included in the evaluation has shown the ability to deliver a new level of staple length, strength, and uniformity. In company testing prior to 2020, this variety consistently produced staple 1 to 2 lengths above DP 1646 B2XF.
