    There are increasing areas of cotton grown in regions which are prone to cool seasons, eg. the Darling Downs, the upper Namoi and upper Macquarie valleys. Farmers even further south in the Lachlan valley are also now ...
  • Hubick, K.T.; Farquhar, G.D. (1988-08-17)
    The Cotton Council has been funding our project, for which we intend to identify cotton varieties with efficiency of dry matter production when irrigation is expensive, or relatively inexpensive. The fonner will be achieved ...
  • BROWNE, R.S. (1988-08-17)
    Chemical Farming implies the use of chemicals for the control of insects, weeds and diseases. In this paper, I want to deal with the use of herbicides in cotton that can be used with, or as a substitute mechanical cultivation. ...
