    As cotton is naturally sensitive to a range of herbicides used for the control of broadleaf weeds, post-emergence suppression of such weeds is limited to relatively inefficient lay-by herbicides and mechanical means including ...
  • Millar, A.; Dennis, E.S. (1990-08-08)
    Plants encounter many environmental stresses such as droughts, flooding, extreme temperatures and high salt concentrations just to name a few. Some plants have been shown to respond to a particular stress by switching on ...

    Mycorrhizas are symbiotic associations between the roots of plants and fungi. They come into existence when the plant's root system becomes infected with an appropriate fungus.
  • Allen, S.J. (1990-08-08)
    A disease can only occur when a virulent pathogen contacts a susceptible host under favourable environmental conditions. The incidence and severity of a disease reflects the occurence of these three factors. Plant breeders ...
  • Thomson, N.J. (1990-08-08)
    Okay, so what should I talk about? Well, for one thing, what better than what I see as the eternal, ever-increasing breeding dilemma - that is, what and how many attributes should a breeder aim to improve in any particular ...

    In my paper on the fundamentals of Classing I would like to outline both the traditional style classing and the modern high volume instrument classing.

    Establishing a satisfactory stand of cotton is a continuing problem for many growers. Even when the crop is not planted 'too early in terms of the 9: 00 soil temperature there is still a risk involved . A cold snap following ...
  • McDonnell, Bill (1990-08-08)
    The most outstanding features of recent seasons have been the relatively dry conditions experienced in most areas during growth and boll setting followed by unprecedently wet harvests. The variety scene has also seen major ...
  • Hearn, A.B. (1990-08-08)
    The wild ancestors of cotton are found in the arid regions of the world. They are adapted to survive long periods of extremely dry weather and to respond to an occasional storm or flash flood by rapidly producing fruit ...

  • Butler, Ray (1990-08-08)
    The past season has been 11 abnormal 11 - how do we define a 11 normal" one? - but abnormal in the sense that significant shifts in trading patterns have occurred. Most striking has been the setback to the Soviet 1989/ 90 ...
  • P.G.Cox (1990-08-08)
    Very few economists are employed in Australian cotton research. Biological researchers often seem to believe that the job of economists is just to "put in the prices" after a new technology has been developed. Certainly, ...
