  • Brook, , K.D.; Hearn., A.B. (1984-12-05)
    This paper reports the initial results from testing different versions of the SIRATAC pest management system in the Namoi Valley for two seasons the experiments were designed to investigate the ability of the program to ...
  • Constable, G.A.; Hodgson, A.S. (1984-12-05)
    An evaluation of drip irrigation for cotton production
  • 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 ...
  • Lawrence, Peter; Berthelsen, John; Hare., Jenelle (1984-12-05)
    Different cultivars are now becoming commercially available including Australian bred cultivars, and cotton growers now have a choice of which cultivar to plant. Hence, the question is, do the different cotton growing ...
  • 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 ...
  • Thomson, N.J. (1984-12-05)
    In 1981 we released SICOT 3 to the industry. This variety is distinguished by glabrous (ultra-smooth) leaves and stems, and frego bracts (these morphological characteristics and their effects on pests are described in ...
  • Fitt, Gary P. (1984-12-05)
    With the appearance of pvrethroid resistance in Heliothis armigera during the 1992/3 cropping season a strategy aimed at limiting the development of widespread resistance was rapidly implemented .H. armigera had previously ...
  • 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 ...

    Unknown author (1984-12-05)
  • 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 ...
  • Daly, Joanne; Drake, Alistair; Farrow, Roger (1984-12-05)
    A knowledge of dispersal is essential to an understanding of population control and to the management of insecticide resistance. The Division of Entomology, CSIRO, is undertaking ecological studies and radar observations ...
  • Hamilton, David (1984-12-05)
    At Emerald, in the 1982/83 season, significant levels of field resistance in Heliothis armiger to synthetic pyrethroid insecticides were detected. In the field, many of the later maturing crops were severely damaged by ...
  • Forrester, N.W.; Cahill, M. (1984-12-05)
    In response to the development of resistance to pyrethroids by Heliothis armigera in 1983, an Insecticide management strategy was devised.in an attempt to prolong the field effectiveness of this and indeed, the other ...
  • Thomson, N.J.; Reid, P.; Fitt, G. (1984-12-05)
    Over the last quarter of a century, as problems in relying completely on pesticides for control of insects have become apparent, there has been renewed interest in the possibility of breeding cottons less susceptible to ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
