  • Deverall, B.J.; Colson ,E. S. (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Growing concern in recent years about the effects of pesticides and fungicides on the environment has led to an increased interest in alternative plant protection methods worldwide. Enhancing plants' own natural defence ...
  • Olsen, Karen; Daly, Joanne (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Cotton plants expressing the CrylAc toxin from Bt are near to commercial release. These plants have been developed to aid in the control of heIiothis caterpillars (both Helicoverpa armigera and H punctigera ), the primary ...
  • Gibb, Dallas (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    In developing a water management plan, f m water use efficiency can be broken down into three segments - plant, agronomic and irrigation efficiency. This paper will briefly discuss important aspects which can effect plant ...
  • Gunning, Robin (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    The cotton whitefly Bemisia tabaci is a serious pest of fibre and horticultural and ornamental crops worldwide. When present in sufficient numbers, it can cause extensive damage through direct feeding, the production of ...
  • Brown, J.F.; Allen, Stephen; Nehl, D.B. (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Farmers have probably always realised that soil is alive. Good soil seems to have certain intangible qualities, over and above its physical structure and chemistry. There is something special about topsoil. What are these ...
  • Schoenfisch, M (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    This is a Cotton Research and Development Corporation funded three year project toconsider the follong areas and address the issues developed below.Aims:To continue and develop the work begun in the existing project which ...
  • Cooper, B.W; Brooks, A.J (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    In Australia the primary pesticide for control of heliothis in cotton is the organochlorine endosulfan. In recent years it bus been supplemented by a variety of other pesticides including organophosphates, carbarnates, ...
  • Williams, Allan (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    After three years of the joint research program, a system of best management practices was identified as the best way of achieving the second and third goals. It was therefore decided to create a user friendly, practical ...
  • Mensah, Robert; Gregg, Peter; Khan, Moazzem (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Tile green mirid, Creontiades dilutus (Stal) is one of the early season pests of cotton. This insect was identified in the late 1970's and can cause considerable damage to cotton seedlings and squares resulting in ...
  • Rohde,K.W.; Yule,D.F. (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Crop rotations, including wheat and sorghum, can provide stubble cover to protectthe soil while cotton is establishing. Controlled traffic layouts have the potential to evenly distribute runoff over the field and prevents ...
  • Morris , P.R.; Cameron,D. F.; Naidu,B. P. (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Glycinebetaine is a compound that some plants accumulate as a defence against stress conditions. In this paper we demonstrate that the application of glycinebetaine to cotton seed increased plant yield. Seed germination ...
  • Chunyan, Liao; Akhurst, Ray (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    The introduction of transgenic cotton expressing the CrylAc insecticidal crystal protein from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is expected to provide the basis for pest management in cotton in the near future and to reduce the ...
  • Lacey, Ian; Heading, Lincoln; Yeats, Steve; Strickland, Geoff (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Total dependence on broad spectrum insecticides led to nerve insensitivity resistance in Helicoverpa armigera and, eventually, to the collapse of the previously successful cotton industry at Kununurra in 1974. The final ...
  • Longstaff, B.C; McBratney, A.B; Lyton-Hitchins, J.A (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Rapid changes in cotton farming practices and the introduction of new synthetic insecticides and control strategies over the last 10-15 years are likely to have led to significant changes in the species diversity and ...
  • Mares, Cheryl; Ma, Lihua; Fitt, Gary (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Host plant resistance has long been a focus of the CSIRO cotton breeding program with emphasis on both morphological (okra leaf, frego bract) and biochemical factors (high gossypol) for resistance to insects. Some of this ...
  • Polya,Gideon M.; Chung ,Roland P.-T. (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    In cotton, the best known of the secondary metabolites isolated, Gossypol, have been found to have antifungal and antitumour activity (Harborne and Baxter, 1993) and to target enzymes in the signal transduction system, ...
  • Putcha, Subbu; Allen, Stephen (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Research into biocontrol of cotton diseases at the ACRI began in 1991. Since thennumerous microorganisms have been tested. Several of these have controlled seedling diseases, Verticillium wilt and Fusarium wilt effectively ...
