“FM 1944GLB2 is as good or better than any other cotton on my farm. It picked well over two bales on dryland, which is really good on those acres. It performed well all year. FM 1944GLB2 is also a great tool for managing your weeds. With the LibertyLink and GlyTol traits, I was able to spray twice with Liberty herbicide and once with glyphosate to controlled my resistant weeds and grasses. It worked great. I have already told my seed dealer that I want more FM 1944GLB2 for next season.” Robert Jones Lyons, Georgia

“The FM 1845LLB2 that we planted this year had very strong emergence. It looked good coming out of the ground compared to other varieties, and I think it performed real well. And in the end, it looks like we’re going to have good yields.” Ben Sanders Toombs County, Georgia

VARIETIES Georgia

“This year the ST 4145LLB2 yielded exceptionally well. It’s our top-yielding cotton. It did a little over 3½ bales per acre, almost 1,800 pounds of lint ginner out per acre. ST 4145LLB2 picked extremely clean. It was real showy. You could tell what you had when you went in the field, and it all went in the basket.” Jason Herndon Lyons, Georgia

“We planted 89 acres of the ST 4145LLB2 the first year it was available, and it’s really, really good cotton. As a matter of fact, it was the best cotton I had. ST 4145LLB2 picked excellent. I was surprised that it yielded like it did – for us, 1,526 pounds really good cotton.” Grover Cobb J. H. Harrison Farms Bartow, Georgia
