Choose FiberMax Varieties

You need varieties that reliably deliver premium quality and high yield in a trait package with pest management tools tailored to efficiently control your toughest weeds and insects. High-quality FiberMax varieties provide the economic advantage you need today.


For Premium Quality
Because FiberMax consistently delivers high-quality lint cotton, growers who plant FiberMax increase their opportunity to earn premium prices.


For High Yield
The FiberMax® One Ton Club™ now includes 1,084 growers, all of whom qualified for membership by harvesting more than 2,000 pounds per acre on at least 20 acres planted to FiberMax. Most One Ton Club members harvested those yields in more than one year, with a good number qualifying in five years or more. No other cottonseed brand has documented that level of yield among so many growers.


For Risk Management
Growers who plant FiberMax varieties receive economic support for their sustainability. The Shared Risk™ Program offers replant, crop loss and dryland protection for economic sustainability.


For Weed and Pest Management
Growers can use premium seed treatments for essential protection from nematodes and early-season disease and insects. Flexible, proven weed control is in the FiberMax cotton seed bag through the GlyTol® and LibertyLink® traits that allow over-the-top application at full label rates of Liberty® herbicide and glyphosate. Industry-leading worm control is in the FiberMax cotton seed bag with two- and three-gene worm resistance traits.
