    Excerpt from Uniformity of Cotton Fiber Determined by Field Inspection

    Three outstanding new varieties - Durango, Meade, and Acala were developed by the United States Department of Agriculture in the period 1908 - 16 and placed in cultivation in several localities. In each case the immediate response was very favorable on account of premiums then being paid for longer fiber, and the yields were larger than from other varieties of comparable staple lengths. But the supplies of pure seed were entirely inadequate, and the sudden popularity of the new varieties was followed by commercial selling of large quantities of mixed seed. The resulting crops showed a serious decline in the quality of the fiber, and the varieties soon fell into disrepute, even in districts where good results had been obtained a. Few seasons before. No consistent efforts were made by the grow ers to maintain the seed stocks, and in a few seasons the varieties were practically discarded.
