Seed Source Genetics will offer one new conventional cotton variety for 2014. The variety was developed by Arkansas cotton breeder Fred Bourland.

UA 103 is a conventional, okra-leaf with a long staple, 1.18 to 1.22. Micronaire is around 4.5 and strength is 30-31.5. The variety is highly resistant to bacterial blight, moderately tolerant to Verticillium wilt and root-knot nematode. It is resistant to Fusarium wilt and moderately resistant to tarnished plant bug. It showed good lint yields at a trial at Judd Hill in west Tennessee with high Verticillium wilt pressure.
