HIGH PERFORMING VARIETIES YIELDING EXCEPTIONAL RESULTS
Since the late 1980’s, Americot has been breeding the best variety of cotton for maximum performance, for growers all across the Cotton Belt. Our breeding program began to address short-season, picker-type varieties for northern Arkansas. Focus was then expanded in the 1990’s to include west Texas, followed by further expansion of our product portfolio to include multiple upland cotton varieties in all maturity classes for the entire Cotton Belt.
