  • Allaway, R.A. (1984-12-05)
    In agriculture we often hear reports of new wonder varieties that are about.to revolutionise agriculture, yet when these varieties are released, if.indeed they are released, they seem to fall far short of the publicity ...
  • Fitt, , Gary P.; Forrester, , N.W.; Cahill, M. (1984-12-05)
    Catches in pheromone traps can provide two types of information of interest to growers and researchers. Firstly, trap catches may directly indicate the abundance of moths in an area and hence the level of egg laying.in the ...
  • Moffett, Melda L. (1984-12-05)
    Bacterial blight [Xanthomonas campestris pv. malvacearum (Smith 1901) Dye.1972], of cotton produces angular spots on leaves and squares, causes defoliation, lesions on sterns and bolls and reduces yield. Downward spread ...
  • Luckett, D.J. (1984-12-05)
    The high quality cotton Namcala and its predecessor Hopicala have traditionally been grown on small percentages of the Australian cotton acreage (Mainly in NSW) as an alternative to the high yielding varieties such as ...
  • Twine, P.H. (1984-12-05)
    Resistance is seen as a manifestation of the most basic property of life, namely the capacity of organisms to evolve in response to changing environmental conditions and to adapt to new circumstances. Despite the detection ...
  • Adams, G.D.; Foley, D.H.; Pyke, B.A. (1984-12-05)
    In recent years sap-sucking bugs have been associated with early season damage.to cotton crops in most of the production centres in New South Wales and Queensland. Four species have been included in this pest complex: the ...
  • Allen, Stephen J. (1984-12-05)
    Commercial cotton crops in the major New South Wales production areas were inspected during the 1983/84 growing season. The purpose of these surveys was to assess the relative distribution, incidence and severity of the ...
  • Gunning R.V.; Ferris, I.G. (1984-12-05)
    Intense selection pressure has led to the development of insecticide resistance
  • Reid, Peter (1984-12-05)
    At Narrabri we are continuing our breeding program to develop locally adapted early maturing varieties. At present there are no early varieties available commercially in Australia hut we feel that they could play an important role
  • McKenzie, D.C. (1984-12-05)
    Soils that disperse tend to have poor drainage; excessive swelling closes soil pores, which also block up with dispersed clay, sand and silt. Poorly drained soils remain moist close to the surface for prolonged periods ...
