dc.description.abstract This report has been prepared as a cotton management tool for the cotton growers and their consultants in the Darling Downs Cotton Management Group. This report summarises the data collected in this group for the 1997/98, 1998/99 and 1999/2000 seasons. The first part of the report presents the information in bar graphs showing the average results for each season. The second part of the report presents the information in scatter graphs which shows the range and variability of each field's results. The Report's information has been collected from 162 dry land and 169 irrigated fields over the last three seasons. All of the fields are located around Dalby based on the cotton growing areas of Jimbour, Macalister and Warra north of Dalby, and Nandi and Kupunn to the south-west. In the last three years there has been a change in the attitude of growers in the group towards the adoption of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This has been driven by the increased availability of IPM tools such as the newer lngard varieties and softer chemical options. The group has also participated in this benchmarking report and workshops which have shown the economic benefits ofIPM. They have also shared experiences of other growers and consultants on how they have managed their crops and what has been successful.
