  • Yeates, Steve (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2009-06-30)
    It was demonstrated that varying irrigation deficits, if linked to measures of plant stress, will improve cotton yield and WUE. These benefits if adopted will impact on the 75% of Australia’s irrigated cotton that is grown ...
  • 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 ...
