  • Montgomery, Janelle (NSW Department of Primary Industries, 2015-06-30)
    In June 2014, irrigation researchers met in Narrabri for IrriCOMM. This workshop arose from discussion between CSIRO, CRDC and NSW DPI about irrigation research. The tools that irrigators are using to manage their ...
  • Montgomery, Janelle (New South Wales Department of Primary Industries, 2017-06-30)
    The purpose of the 2016 Smarter Irrigation Technology Tour (an intensive three day tour to Northern Victoria and Southern NSW) had several objectives. To examine a range of surface irrigation layouts, the hydraulics, ...
  • Coast, Onoriode (CSIRO Agriculture & Food, 2016-06-30)
    There is significant gap between the average industry yield and the top achievers in irrigated cotton industry of Australia. This gap can be reduced significantly by utilizing the opportunity to improve irrigation efficiency. ...
  • Butler, Greg (AgDel, 2019-06-30)
    Ultra-High Pressure Water Jet technology has a number of industrial applications in product manufacturing. The technology uses water pumped through specialised nozzles at ultra-high pressures (50,000-60,000 psi) to create ...
  • Luo, Qunying (University of Technology, 2016-06-30)
    A warmer and drier climate has been projected in Australia especially for the inner part of Australia (CSIRO, 2007) which covers the cotton production regions. This change will have significant implications for the sustainable ...
  • Yeates, Stephen; Grundy, Paul (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2016-06-30)
    The Burdekin region of coastal north Queensland and other areas of tropical Australia provide a significant opportunity for Australian cotton industry stabilisation and contribution to drought proofing. This proposal will ...
  • Yang, Shouren; Crowle, Genevieve; Gordon, Stuart (CSIRO Materials Science and Engineering, 2012-06-30)
    The dyeing of cotton is influenced by chemical and physical interactions between dye molecules and the substrate, many of which are not well understood. This project reviews current knowledge of the relationships between ...
  • Gillies, Malcolm (University of Southern Queensland, 2012-06-30)
    Despite the increased adoption of pressurised irrigation systems in recent years, furrow irrigation is and will remain to be the dominant application technique in the Australian cotton industry in the foreseeable future. ...
  • Roth, Guy (Roth Rural & Regional Pty Ltd, 2013-06-30)
    The project has developed three practising certified myBMP auditors. There are currently no growers waiting for a certification audit. Seven farms have now reached “Certification Status”, five of which were achieved via ...
  • Winter, Michelle (Goulburn-Murray Water, 2012-06-10)
    Water in open channels is subject to high evaporative losses. Some 701 gigalitres of water is lost annually through evaporation from channels in Northern Victoria. Research and field trials carried out by many workers ...
  • Bartimote, Timothy (University of Sydney, 2015-06-30)
    Water is the most limiting input in irrigated cotton production. Compaction reduces access to the soil water resource and reduces soil health. Incorporating Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) in 1.5 m row irrigated cotton ...
  • Broughton, Katie; Bange, Michael (CSIRO Agriculture and Food, 2018-05-30)
    Climate change will affect cotton through rising atmospheric CO2 levels, higher temperatures, lower humidity (high Vapour Pressure Deficit (VPD)) and reduced water availability. Fortunately predictions for climate change ...
  • Chaffey, Ali; Smith, John (New South Wales Department of Primary Industries; CottonInfo, 2018-06-30)
    Following the success of CottonInfo researcher tours over recent years, the 2018 “Optimising Irrigation & Nitrogen” tour aimed to bring together researchers, industry, advisors and growers; with the objective of raising ...
  • Rochester, Ian (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2013-06-30)
    This project will assist the cotton industry to reduce its impact upon the environment and improve the health of its soil resource and achieve its aims to use fertiliser inputs more efficiently. Soil health benefits ...
  • Rowland, Stuart; Allan, Geoff (2006-08-10)
    A collaborative research project involving NSW DPI and QDPI&F through the Cotton Catchment Communities CRC has commenced to evaluate the potential for aquaculture on cotton farms. The objectives of the NSW DPI component ...
  • Phillip, Andrew (Northern Territory Farmers Association Inc., 2019-06-30)
    Cotton has been looked to be a commercial crop in the Northern Territory on several occasions over the last 100 years, firstly as a wet season crop and more recently (in the last 25 years) as a dry season (winter) crop. ...
  • McIntyre, Sue; Anthony, Arthur,; McGinness, Heather (CSIRO Ecosystem Sciences, 2012-06-30)
    The irrigation industry is facing substantial change that is likely to affect the quantity and timing of water supply, as well as the infrastructure involved in water delivery and use. Effective adaptation to this change ...
  • Baillie, Craig (University of Southern Queensland, 2008-06-30)
    Within highly mechanised agricultural productions systems such as the Australian cotton industry, operational energy inputs represent a significant cost to growers. Overall, it has been estimated that machinery may contribute ...
  • Gaynor, Harry (The University of Sydney, 2019-06-30)
    Irrigation is a key component of cotton production in Australian agriculture, where increasing pressures of water scarcity requires growers to improve their water use efficiency. Monitoring of soil water deficits is a key ...
