3 Min Read

A new Bollgard® 3 XtendFlex® cotton variety with resistance to both reniform and root-knot nematodes has been launched as part of the Deltapine® Class of ’21 for the Southwest.

DP 2143NR B3XF (tested as 19R242NRB3XF) is a mid- to full-maturity Bollgard 3 XtendFlex variety showing resistance to reniform and root-knot nematodes and moderate tolerance to Verticillium wilt. Deltapine New Product Evaluator (NPE) growers Daryl and Doyle Schniers near San Angelo, Texas, gave a thumbs-up for the advancement of DP 2143NR B3XF after their experience with the variety.

“We planted it in a three-repetition check trial in a drip-irrigation field with heavy pressure, comparing it against another nematode-resistant variety and a variety that is not resistant,” said Daryl. “DP 2143NR B3XF outyielded the nonresistant variety by two-and-a-half bales [per acre] and edged out the nematode-resistant variety. It grew right through the early-season nematode pressure, and we practically saw no damage in the variety. We like the fact that it is a Bollgard 3 XtendFlex variety. I think it is going to work for us.”

Under heavy reniform nematode pressure, DP 2143NR B3XF demonstrated outstanding yield potential in on-farm trials in 2020.
