    An evaluation of drip irrigation for cotton production
  • Cahill, M.; Easton, G.; Forrester, N.; Goodyer, G. (1984-12-05)
    The adult stages of the two Heliothis species found most abundantly in the summer cropping areas of Australia (H. armigera and .H. punctigera) are easily distinguishable and have been so for some time. However the inability ...
  • Browne, R.S. (1984-12-05)
    By now most people in the cotton industry have formed an opinion about Siratac as a concept and Siratac as a Company. The range of opinion varies from those who are strongly against both the concept and operation of the ...
  • Forrester, , N.W.; Cahill, M. (1984-12-05)
    Numerous studies on the effect of the nectariless gene on insect pests of cotton have been carried out both overseas and in Australia. However most of the latter studies have been conducted under small plot conditions which ...
  • Thomson, N.J. (1984-12-05)
    I will first mention some of the features distinguishing "Australian Conditions". Our industry has developed almost exclusively as a mechanised high-input industry with water and nitrogen being supplied liberally together ...
  • Page, F.D.; Modini, M.P.; Murray, D.A.H. (1984-12-05)
    The pink spotted bollworm (Pectinophora scutigera) has been an important.pest of cotton since 1924 in coastal, and sub-coastal Dawson-Callide regions of central Queensland. Its distribution has been described as.coastal ...
  • Holdom, , D.G.; van de Klashorst, G. (1984-12-05)
    With increasing problems of resistance to chemical pesticides amongst cotton pests, especially Heliothis, more attention is being given to biological control agents, including pathogens. Pathogens are often more compatible ...
  • 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 ...
  • McGarry, D. (1984-12-05)
    At the 1982 Australian Cotton Growers' Research Conference the effects of land preparation at different soi1 water contents on soil structure and cotton growth was reported. In summary, land preparation on 'wet' rather ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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
  • Wilson, A.G.L. (1984-12-05)
    A contribution was made to the last ACGRA conference on "The duration.of insecticidal activity against Heliothis larvae on cotton". This paper.is primarily an update of the previous contribution and the more detailed.results ...
  • Wilson, A.G.L. (1984-12-05)
    To optimize catches of Heliothis punctigera and H. armigera pheromone blends, dispenser and trap design have been evaluated and modified over a.7 year period. A laminated plastic lure loaded with appropriate pheromone ...
  • 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 ...
  • Daly, Joanne (1984-12-05)
    The term 'genetics' encompasses a group of disciplines which study aspects of evolution. the first of these, molecular genetics, examines DNA, the raw material of evolution, and its organisation into genes. Genes code for ...
