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.
