San Joaquin Valley cotton growers can expect reliable performance with high levels of yield and quality from Acala 4–42 cotton planting seed, regardless of seed stock source and location during the four years of seed multiplication—or the valley location from which the final planting seed comes. These studies involved seed stock from six sources and locations as well as four different test site locations for the final steps of seed multiplication.
