  • Ceeney, Sally (Ceeney Agricultural Consultants Pty Ltd, 2015-06-30)
    Transgenic cotton was introduced to Australia in 1996 with Ingard® which was replaced by Bollgard II® in 2004/05. Transgenic cotton is now grown by over 95% of Australian cotton growers so is an integral part of the ...
  • Chapman, Murray (University of Queensland, 2006-06-30)
    Knowledge is fundamental to improving the competitiveness, responsiveness and levels of innovation that we see in industries. This research project completed interviews with 90 growers of cotton and grains, consultants, ...
  • Kong, Gary (Plant Biosecurity Cooperative Research Centre, 2015-06-30)
    The principal aim of this project is to pilot a system for remote identification of cotton pests using mobile technology, wireless microscopes and the Pestpoint software developed by the Plant Biosecurity CRC(PBCRC). Currently, ...
  • Gang He, Ding (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2001-06-30)
    Cotton is currently the only crop whose transgenic varieties are used in large-scale production in Australia. Transformation of cotton is therefore of special importance for the healthy development of plant biotechnology ...
  • Day, Peter (Clive Lyle & Associates, Balwyn North, Victoria & Aquatech consulting Pty Ltd, Narrabri, NSW, 2002-06-30)
    Catchment, water resources and agricultural management are undergoing significant and difficult change in the Northern Murray-Darling Basin (NMDB). This Report has been developed following the interest of a number of ...
  • Corish, Nigel (Nigel Corish, 2016-06-30)
    The aim of this research was to improve nitrogen use in irrigated cotton by looking at how farmers around the world are improving Nitrogen Use Efficiency (NUE), and to identify what management tools and practices farmers ...
  • Beattie, Andrew (University of Western Sydney, 2003-06-30)
    For more than a century, petroleum-derived spray oils have been used to kill susceptible pests, principalIy scales and wites through anoxia (suffocation). This mode of action, and the use of oils as adjuvants, has severely ...
  • Redden, Bruce (NSW Agriculture, 2001-06-30)
    The objective of the project was to provide additional temporary accommodation for personnel and equipment. A 36sq meter demountable building was purchased and located adjacent to insectary number 2. Services were connected ...
  • Meppem, Tony (NSW Department of Primary Industries, 2006-06-30)
    The CRDC project funds for “Operational Costs for Cotton Experiments” are used to fund cotton experimental trials at the Australian Cotton Research Institute (ACRI). The management of cotton growing for experimental trial ...
  • Redden, Bruce (NSW Agriculture, 2002-06-30)
    The cost of running and maintaining cotton experimental trials at ACRI is a cost that has increased over years of research as more trials have evolved. The purpose of this project is provide such funding in order that all ...
  • Mensah, R (1995-06-30)
    In Australia, management of cotton pests is insecticide based. Beneficial insects are neglected due to the disruptive impact of the insecticides, lack of techniques to maximise their abundance and effectiveness and also ...
  • Nicholls, Jamie (University of Queensland, 2003-06-30)
    Cotton production in Australia is vitally dependent upon the safe and efficient application of pesticides. Timely and of insecticides, often only possible using aircraft, is required to maintain adequate control of pest ...
  • Baird, Jon (NSW Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, 2015-06-30)
    Financial performance benchmarking studies have identified increasing fertiliser input costs in the cotton industry. Farm profitability has been eroded as a result of an emerging trend by cotton growers to apply high rates ...
  • Naylor, Geoffrey (CSIRO Textile and Fibre Technology, 2003-06-30)
    The commonly used Micronaire value for cotton is related to both fibre fineness and maturity. There is a need for a new measurement technique to separate these. This is of particular importance to the Australian industry ...
  • Khan, Moazzem (Queensland Department of Primary Industries, 2001-06-30)
    The research into shield bug pests addresses an emerging issue resulting from a reduction in the use of disruptive insecticide sprays on cotton, especially Ingard cotton. Shield bugs have caused serious losses on some ...
  • Khan, Moazzem (Queensland Department of Primary Industries, 2004-06-30)
    Stinkbugs are emerging pests in cotton. In conventional cotton the use of broad-spectrum insecticides to kill Helicoverpa spp. effectively controlled the stinkbugs, but with the introduction of transgenic Bt cotton the use ...
  • Herron, Grant (NSW Agriculture, 2003-06-30)
    To help understand the underlying basis of the resistance to pirimicarb, and hence improve the chance of effective management, Dr Robin Gunning and Dr Graham Moores (Rothamstead, UK) did a preliminary screen on resistant ...
  • Noune, Christopher (Queensland University of Technology, 2017-07-30)
    The Nucleopolyhedroviruses (NPV) are dsDNA invertebrate-specific obligate pathogens of the insect orders Lepidoptera, Hymenopteran and Dipteran belonging to the family Baculoviridae (Baculovirus). An NPV consists of a ...
  • Rochester, Ian (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2003-06-30)
    The cotton industry spends about $8M on P fertilizers and about $5M of K fertilizers. This indicates the extent of recognised P and K deficiency. It is envisaged that many cotton-growing soils are nearing deficient status, ...
  • Griffiths, Brendon (University of New England, 2016-06-30)
    The phosphorus dynamics of dryland cotton production require further elucidation, particularly the role of residual fertiliser P and mycorrhizal infection in yield. Incitec Pivot Ltd., in collaboration with independent ...
