Deltapine Cotton Offers the Strongest Cotton Yields

Consistent Yield Performance

With a long history of consistent, high-end performance, Deltapine is the number-one planted brand of cotton seed and growers’ best choice for proven genetics and traits.

Deltapine brand cotton varieties are evaluated and proven to perform in the New Product Evaluator (NPE) program before they are put in a Deltapine bag and sold for commercial planting. Since 2009, growers across the Cotton Belt have relied on Deltapine and the NPE growers to deliver new cotton varieties that raise the bar on yield performance potential and offer effective trait solutions to pest management.


Regional university official variety trials (OVT) across three years, totaling hundreds of individual trial results within each region, demonstrate the consistent, industry-leading performance advantage of Deltapine brand varieties over competitor genetics and trait systems.

  • Across the Southeast, Deltapine® brand cotton offers a broad portfolio outperforming top tested PhytoGen® W3FE varieties by 83 lbs/ac across 1,695 comparisons.*

  • In the North and South Delta, top performing Deltapine® brand cotton varieties outperformed top tested PhytoGen® W3FE products by 66 lbs/ac across 1,011 comparisons. *

  • In West Texas, top performing Deltapine® brand cotton products outperformed top tested PhytoGen® W3FE varieties by 42lbs/ac across 39 comparisons.*

“We've been planting Deltapine for years and it has always performed well and have never had any reason to want to go very heavily with any other brand,” said Chase Heard who farms in Baker, Miller and Decatur Counties, Georgia. “We do plant other brands to trial them, but 90% of our acres are planted to Deltpaine because of consistent performance.”

Allen Below of Parma, Missouri, says the two “stars” of his farm have been DP 2127 B3XF and DP 2115 B3XF. “We started growing both of them in 2021, and they have been good for us,” he said.

In the Texas Southern Rolling Plains, Ralph Kellermeier plants Deltapine strong cotton varieties. “We’re looking for consistent performance in tough conditions on many of our fields and the NPE program has helped us find the right varieties for those acres,” he said.

Deltapine has been the leader in the Southeastern regions for decades. “Here, in our area, you just cannot beat Deltapine,” according to Nick Marshall in Baker, Florida.

Alabama grower Nick McMichen echoes that sentiment. “Our farm’s yield potential has increased significantly since 2008, there is no doubt,” said McMichen. “From DP 0912 B2RF to DP 1646 B2XF to DP 2012 B3XF and now DP 2127 B3XF — the varieties released through the NPE program just keep getting better.”

And Keeff Felty, who farms in Altus, Oklahoma, says it best: “Whenever I did not plant Deltapine, I always wish that I had of planted Deltapine.”
