    In 2001 a scoping study (phase I) was commissioned to determine and prioritise the weed issues of cropping systems with dryland cotton. The main findings were that the weed flora was diverse, cropping systems complex, and ...
  • Stubbs, Judith (Cotton Catchment Communities CRC, 2009-03-21)
    The Study develops a framework and set of social, economic and environmental indicators that aid in understanding how some 'cotton communities' are performing against relevant state and national benchmarks. The first part ...
  • Cotton Catchment Communities CRC (Cotton Catchment Communities CRC, 2009-06-30)
    Water remains a key issue for the cotton industry, with improving water use efficiency a priority. Relatively water research has focussed on the plant and its interaction with the soil and climate. Currently deficit ...
  • House, Alan (Cotton Catchment Communities CRC, 2009-09-01)
    The maintenance of biodiversity in intensively farmed landscapes in Australia relies mainly on small patches and linear strips of native vegetation - what's been left behind to delineate paddock and property boundaries, ...
  • Sequeira, Richard (Cotton Catchment Communities CRC, 2008-06-30)
    Central Queensland (CQ) has had a long history of cotton production, with a modern industry spanning over 30 years. The hot tropical climate of CQ presents both constraints and opportunities for cotton production. Production ...
  • Cotton Catchment Communities CRC (Cotton Catchment Communities CRC, 2011-06-30)
    The Australian cotton industry places a large emphasis on IPM. To boost IPM further, along with plant based threshold and monitoring procedures, IPM tools are needed. Salt mixtures are considered to be one such tool to ...
  • Allen, Stephen; Lonergan, Peter; Anderson, Chris (Cotton Catchment Communities CRC, 2010-10-12)
    The &quote;Diseases of Cotton&quote; projects have run since 1984 and have played a key role in monitoring the emergence and decline of cotton diseases over time, often following the adoption of new technologies.Consequently, ...
  • Midgley, David (Cotton Catchment Communities CRC, 2007-09-30)
    Black root rot caused by Thielaviopsis basicola has become a major seedling disease in cotton soils since 1989. The role of seedling pathogens has become increasingly evident in the establishment and early growth of cotton. ...
  • Downes, Sharon (Cotton Catchment Communities CRC, 2008-06-30)
    Mortality of Helicoverpa in Bollgard II® cotton fields and implications for Bt resistance management Final report To prolong the utility of Bollgard II® against H. armigera, growers that use this tool must follow a resistance ...
  • Ringrose-Voase, Anthony (Cotton Catchment Communities CRC, 2009-04-02)
    Drainage from below the plant root zone is not only a waste of water resources but a potential driver of rising water tables and salinity. Better estimates of the quantity and timing of drainage are required in the clay ...
  • Cotton Catchment Communities CRC (Cotton Catchment Communities CRC, 2006-06-30)
    Experiments to establish the response of cotton plant to soil water stress under different soil types, climatic conditions and fruiting loads have shown that (i) the response of cotton to water stress is different on ...
  • Yeates, Stephen (Cotton Catchment Communities CRC, 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 ...
