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.

Americot has dedicated significant new resources to expand our research and breeding capabilities. Our breeding program currently has four dedicated plant breeders on staff, with a combined experience of more than 80 years of cotton breeding and crop improvement knowledge. To support our rapidly growing customer base and areas of service, we have made extensive investments in both research staffing and technical resources, all with our growers’ needs in mind.
By being able to continually develop new and better cotton varieties, we help our growers exceed the highest performance challenges: increasing both yield and quality, and enhancing their profit opportunities.
