In 2002 or 2003 Official Cultivar Trials, GA98033 consistently yielded more than the popular cultivars Deltapine 448B, Deltapine 451BRR, Deltapine 458BRR, Deltapine 655BRR, Deltapine 5415RR, Deltapine 5690RR, FiberMax 991RR, FiberMax 989RR, Stoneville 5303RR, and Stoneville 5599BRR (USDA-AMS, 2003).
cotton hectarage was planted to transgenic cultivars containing genes conferring glyphosate herbicide resistance, Bt-mediated lepidopteran insect resistance, or both (glyphosate + Bt), plus smaller hectarage planted to bromoxynil-resistant cultivars (USDA-AMS, 2002).
The cultivar BXN 47, derived from the popular cultivar Stoneville 474, has gained market share and has supplanted most of the hectarage planted to BXN 57 and BXN 58 (USDA-AMS, 2000, 2001).

cotton crop has experienced a nearly complete turnover in major cultivars, primarily because transgenic cultivars possessing pest management traits have become very popular (USDA-AMS, 1996, 2000).
Data on hectarage planted for the Year 2000 were gleaned from the USDA-AMS publication (USDA-AMS, 2000).
