  • Grace, Peter (CRC for Greenhouse Accounting, 2003-06-30)
    The greenhouse effect is widely considered one of the major threats to Australia agriculture. There is increasing evidence that carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide concentrations are reaching levels that will cause ...
  • Gordon, Bill (Bill Gordon Consulting Pty Ltd, 2015-06-30)
    This project examined the costs and benefits of defoliation strategies used in the defoliation of high input irrigated cotton crops. The project comprised of a field trial and a survey of irrigated cotton enterprises. The ...
  • Dalton, Paul (University of Southern Queensland, 2001-06-30)
    Water use efficiency is a key measure of an irrigation system and its management. Benefits from highly efficient irrigation systems include: greater whole farm water security, lower operating costs, improved production per ...
  • Brier, Hugh (Queensland Department of Primary Industries, 2005-06-30)
    Number of eggs and % Hatch is from collections from all crops supplied for Bt and Conventional Chemistry Resistance monitoring. % H. armigera is from crops that attract both Helicoverpa species, cotton and pigeon pea, to ...
  • Wu, Hanwen (Queensland Department of Primary Industries, 2005-06-30)
    A one-year scoping study determined and prioritised the important weed issues of cropping systems with dryland cotton (DAQ117C). The study was commissioned and funded jointly by CRDC, Cotton CRC, GRDC and Weeds CRC in ...
  • Taylor, Ian (NSW Agriculture, 2002-06-30)
    Dryland cotton fanning systems are complex and usually comprise of a number of different rotational crops in conjunction with summer and winter fallows. The standard system employed in dryland cotton production is the ...
  • Gunning, Robin (NSW Agriculture, 2003-06-30)
    H. armigera populations on cotton have been exposed to BT toxin from sprays and transgenic cotton for a number of years and a CRY 1Ac tolerant strain the “Silver strain” was bred by Dr HT Dang, from the survivors of the ...
  • Gunning, Robin (NSW Department of Primary Industries, 2005-06-30)
    In Australia, the cotton bollworm, Helicoverpa armigera, has a long history of resistance to conventional insecticides, Transgenic cotton (expressing Bt toxin Cry1Ac) has been grown for H. armigera control since 1996. This ...
  • Brown, J.F. (1998-01-01)
    The objectives of this project were: 1. To identify candidate pathogens for the biocontrol of purple nutsedge ( Cyperus rotundus). 2. To determine the potential of candidate pathogens as augmentive and inundative biocontrol ...
  • Reid, Nick (University of New England, 2003-06-30)
    'Biodiversity' refers to the diversity of genes, species, ecosystems and ecoregions. Like other sectors in the Australian economy, the cotton industry has a duty of care to ensure its environmental sustainability, including ...
  • Oakeshott, John (CSIRO Entomology, 2003-06-30)
    Pesticides provide essential protection in the production of many agricultural commodities. However, increasing pesticide use as a result of increased production has led to community concern about the social and environmental ...
  • Oakeshott, John (CSIRO Entomology, 2001-06-30)
    Since the deregistration in many countries of most cyclodiene insecticides, the ongoing availability of endosulfan has become important as an alternative option in resistance management strategies of pest species. Additionally, ...
  • Cottee, Nicola (Cotton Australia, 2016-06-30)
    Within the national framework for biosecurity, all commonwealth and state governments and plant industries who are signatories to the Emergency Plant Pest Response Deed (EPPRD) formally commit to preparations that include; ...
  • Nehl, David (NSW Agriculture, 2001-06-30)
    Black root rot is caused by the soil borne fungus Thielaviopsis basicola, which causes disease in over 137 species of plants (Honess at a1. , 1994). T basicola survives for long periods in the soil as resistant resting ...
  • Constable, Greg (1998-06-30)
    The CSIRO cotton breeding program based at Narrabri has been very successful in developing varieties adapted to all cotton production regions in Australia. At least 90% of the cotton grown in Australia are varieties developed ...
  • Larsen, David (NSW Department of Primary Industries, 2016-06-30)
    Over the last 22 years the Australian cotton industry, through the CRDC and Cotton CRC, have actively invested in the dissemination of research information to growers and the broader community. In addition to the Development ...
  • Hereward, James (University of Queensland, 2015-06)
    This project aimed to minimise the adverse impact of glyphosate-resistant weeds on the cotton industry by assessing the prospect that genetic diversity of targeted weed species can be used to predict which species are at ...
  • Lei, Tom (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2003-06-30)
    The Leaf Chamber Fluorometer is an exciting new addition to the physiological instrumentation available to the scientists at ACRI. The LCF has raised the investigative capabilities of the cotton research team and made it ...
  • Taylor, Dr. Taylor, Ian (NSW Agriculture, 2003-06-30)
    Weed surveys conducted by Charles (1989), Roberts (1996 unpublished) and Taylor (2002 unpublished) indicate that the majority of weeds affecting cotton production in Australian farming systems are annual and ephemeral ...
  • Vervoort, Willem (University of Sydney, 2003-06-30)
