    In Australia, about 85% of cotton farmers grows transgenic (Bt) cotton. Bt cotton controls only Lepidopteran pests but is not effective against sucking pests. Control of these pests and also b Helicoverpa spp. in conventional ...
  • Anderson, Chris; Knox, Oliver; Allen, S.J. (2008-08-08)
    Plant parasitic nematodes are serious pathogens of cotton worldwide and have potential to increase the severity of vascular wilts. In Australia, disease caused by nematodes has not been reported in cotton and the potential ...
  • Anderson, Chris; Lonergan, Peter (2008-08-08)
    While the southern valleys of NSW present a great opportunity for expansion of the cotton industry, they also present unique challenges from a plant disease perspective. This study will fill in the blanks in our knowledge ...
  • Anthony, David (2008-08-08)
    The Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) Programme was established in 1990 to improve the effectiveness of Australia's research and development effort. It links researchers with industry to focus R&D efforts on progress ...
  • Spanswick, Stacey; Jones, Paula (2008-08-08)
    A new relationship between the Cotton Industry and Regional Natural Resource Management (NRM) bodies has successfully capitalised on the implementation of NRM Best Management Practices within cotton catchments. The ...
  • Herron, Grant; McLoon, M.O. (2008-08-08)
    * Cotton aphid and two-spotted mite were collected from Australian cotton growing regions and tested in the laboratory for insecticide resistance., * For the third consecutive season molecular testing was used to detect ...
  • Rochester, Ian (2008-08-08)
    Nitrogen losses can be high from irrigated cropping soils, but these losses can be minimised with careful attention to N fertiliser management. N is lost principally where nitrate is converted to N gases (denitrification), ...
  • Green, Todd (2008-08-08)
    Poster- Fleabane is an increasing problem in summer fallows and crops in minimal tillage farming systems., * Fleabane produces up to 375,000 seeds per plant., * Fallow weed control costs have doubled due to fleabane in ...
  • McCarthy, Alison; Raine, Steven (2008-08-08)
    A simulation framework, VARIwise, is being developed to evaluate control strategies for cotton irrigation via lateral moves and centre pivots. VARIwise allows for field scale variations in input parameters and will simulate ...
  • Yeates, Steve; Roberts, Jenny (2008-08-10)
    When comparing BollgardII with conventional cotton, the lower water requirement and higher lint yield of Bollgard II was explained by greater insect damage in conventional cotton. The effect of this damage was to delay ...
  • Werth, Jeff; Widderick, Michael; Thornby, David (2008-08-10)
    Stopping seed-set on weeds that have survived a treatment of glyphosate is an important part of an IWM approach to preventing the development of glyphosate resistance. The double knock method of seed-set prevention to avoid ...
  • Commins, Roger (2008-08-10)
    We are now in uncharted waters as to our best way forward; are we just experiencing a dry cycle or is this, the permanent weather pattern for the foreseeable future - "Climate Change"; nobody really knows. However, what ...
  • Allen, S.J.; Anderson, C.M.T. (2008-08-10)
    The results of annual disease surveys in both NSW and Queensland continue to provide useful data on the distribution, incidence and importance of diseases of cotton in Australia. Plant pathologists at Narrabri, Brisbane, ...
  • W., Martin, Steven (2008-08-10)
    Cotton pickers with on-board module builders (OBMB) eliminates the need for boll buggies, module builders, the tractors, and labor needed to operate this machinery. Additionally, field efficiency may be increased due to ...
  • Brinkworth, Andrew (2008-08-10)
    During the recent drought that affected much of Australia, particularly in Queensland and New South Wales, the volume of containerised imports through the Port of Brisbane increased significantly. Indeed as far as ...
  • Tuck, C.A.; Bange, M.P.; Stiller, W.N. (2008-08-10)
    The potential for chilling conditions in many Australian cotton growing regions during early growth and development stages demonstrates the need for assessing cold tolerance of cultivars. Preliminary studies have been ...
  • King, Dallas (2008-08-10)
    When I first received the brief from Brendon, "Young Leaders on New Beginnings for the Cotton Industry" my first thoughts were, why did I say yes. Obviously the three of us here today or the rest of the future young leaders ...
  • Anthony, David (2008-08-10)
    , While the cotton industry and irrigated agriculture as a whole has been battered by the continuing drought, industry leaders are looking to the future. They are well away of the importance of R & D to agriculture's long ...
  • Grace, Peter (2008-08-10)
    The principal sources of greenhouse gas emissions on mixed cotton farming enterprises include CO2 from decomposition of crop residues added to soils and native soil organic matter, and the combustion of fuels. Nitrous oxide ...
  • Stubbs, Judith; Lux, Colleen (2008-08-10)
    The Measuring Community Wellbeing in Cotton Communities Study was commissioned by the Cotton Catchments Communities Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) to better understand the socio-economic status of communities where ...
