    Early season pests present a great challenge for pest decisions makers, as any disruption to beneficials early in the season is likely to result in the flaring of pests and increase the necessity for further sprays later ...
  • Brook, Ken D.; Stafford, Brian G.; Hearn, A. Brian (1986-08-20)
    Early crop protection is a controversial subject in modern pest management. Grower magazines in Australia and the U.S. carry articles expressing firm opinions both for and against. Australian cotton growers remain divided ...
  • Bange, Michael; Wilson, Lewis; Richards, Dirk (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2000-08-16)
    We tested the suggestion that early season damage may limit the crops subsequent exploitation of moisture in the skip row, which may in turn 11nxit the crops ability to recover. Over two seasons the recovery response of ...
  • Bauer, Les; Lally, Deirdre; Wilson, Lewis (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1998-08-14)
    The relationship between early season insecticide use and later outbreaks of aphids was investigated in three field experiments. Outbreaks of Aphis gossypii occurred in cotton treated with thiocarb, but not that treated ...
  • McKewen, Lance; Deutscher, Sandra (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Since 1992, CSRO Cotton Research Unit has conducted large scale insect management trials in the upper and lower Namoi Valley. The trials have utilised large field areas on privately owned farms, generally in collaboration ...
  • Rajkhowa, Rangam; Gordon, Stuart (Deakin University, 2019-06-30)
    In this project, a novel treatment was investigated to improve whiteness, brightness, softness and dye uptake of cotton yarn and fabric. It uses an eco-friendly amino acid treatment in place of highly concentrated caustic ...
  • Daly, Joanne (1990-06-30)
    This study determined the genetic basis of pyrethroid resistance in Heliothis annigera and characterised those factors that lead to cyclical fluctuations in the frequency of resistance in field populations. The major ...
  • Daly, Joanne; Trowell, Stephen; Hobbs, Andrew (1990-08-08)
    Ecological genetics is the study of genetic changes and how these are influenced by the biological parameters of a species. One genetic change of importance to the cotton Industry Is the evolution of Insecticide resistance ...
  • Daly, Joanne (2012-06-19)
    This study determined the genetic basis of pyrethroid resistance in Heliothis armigera and characterised those factors that lead to cyclical fluctuations in the frequency of resistance in field populations. The major ...
  • Daly, J. (1993-02-28)
    This project studied the factors responsible for frequency changes in endosulfan resistance.in populations of H. armigera in cotton. From these results it should be possible to.predict under what conditions resistance could ...
  • Hart, Barry T.; Cocklin, Chris; Mautner, Naomi; Pollino, Carmel A. (2006-04-15)
    This report - Ecological Risk Assessment Case Study for the Murray Irrigation Region - is the second in a series of five produced by NPSI project UMO45 Delivering Sustainability through Risk Management. An ecological risk ...
  • Grace, Mike; Woodberry, Owen; Hart, Barry; Pollino, Carmel; Webb, Angus; Chan, Terry (2004-08-27)
    During Phase I of the project "Assessment of Ecological Risk Associated with Irrigation Systems in the Goulburn Broken Catchment" (Cottingham et al., 2001) adverse changes to the abundance and diversity of native fish and ...
  • Grace, Michael; Carey, Jan; Pollino, Carmel; Lund, Mark; Hart, Barry; Bergman, Mark; Webb, Angus; Allison, Graeme; Chapman, Murray; Duivenvoorden, Leo; Feehan, Pat; McCrea, Andrew (2005-06-15)
    This document outlines an ecological risk assessment framework for the Australian irrigation industry. The objective of the framework is to provide a robust process that will assist the irrigation industry to incorporate ...
  • Tann, Colin (CSIRO Entomology, 2003-06-30)
    The major challenge to sustainable use of Bt cotton is the risk that the target pests, Helicoverpa spp, may evolve resistance to the engineered toxins. Resistance to conventional Bt sprays has evolved in field populations ...
  • Lukacs, George (2002-10-18)
    In recognising the apparent move by some States toward new investment in irrigation infrastructure, the Land and Water Resources Research and Development Corporation (LWRRDC) commissioned the Australian Centre for Tropical ...
  • Fitt, Gary (1988-06-30)
    Project aims: (i) to investigate the spatial and temporal patterns of Heliothis adult and larval abundance, mortality and host use by each species and their dispersal from other crops into cotton. (ii) to investigate the ...
  • Kochman, Joe (2000-06-30)
    The discovery this season of Fov in many cotton districts previously thought to be free from the disease has sent shock waves throughout the industry. Districts where this disease has been confirmed now include: The Darling ...
  • Kochman, Joe (Queensland Department of Primary Industries, 2004-06-30)
    Fusarium wilt is considered by many growers, ginners, consultants and other industry personnel as the most important constraint to sustainable cotton production to have developed in recent years. The discovery of Fov in ...
  • Kochman, Joe; Smith, Linda (2004-06-30)
    2. List the project objectives and the extent to which these have been achieved., 1. Monitor the diversity and distribution of strains of Fov in cotton growing areas in Australia. This, objective has been achieved., 2. ...
  • Johnson, Stephen (University of New England, 2003-06-30)
    Hibiscus trionum L. (bladder ketmia) is one of the most common weeds throughout the Australian cotton industry. There are two varieties of the weed, the narrow leaf introduced variety Hibiscus trionum var. trionum and the ...
