  • Wu, Hanwen (Queensland Department of Primary Industries, 2005-06-30)
    A one-year scoping study determined and prioritised the important weed issues of cropping systems with dryland cotton (DAQ117C). The study was commissioned and funded jointly by CRDC, Cotton CRC, GRDC and Weeds CRC in ...
  • Brier, Hugh (Queensland Department of Primary Industries, 2005-06-30)
    Number of eggs and % Hatch is from collections from all crops supplied for Bt and Conventional Chemistry Resistance monitoring. % H. armigera is from crops that attract both Helicoverpa species, cotton and pigeon pea, to ...
  • Gunning, Robin (NSW Department of Primary Industries, 2005-06-30)
    In Australia, the cotton bollworm, Helicoverpa armigera, has a long history of resistance to conventional insecticides, Transgenic cotton (expressing Bt toxin Cry1Ac) has been grown for H. armigera control since 1996. This ...
  • Constable, Greg (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2005-06-30)
    Small laboratory gins are a vital piece of equipment in cotton research at the plant breeding and other subjects where small plots are used. CSIRO’s plant breeding program has more than 30,000 small plots for ginning. ...
  • Baker, Jon-Marie (Cotton Consultants Australia Inc, 2005-06-30)
    This document highlights the performance of Bollgard cotton in the Australian Industry during the 2004-05 season. Data drawn from the 2003-04 season and aggregate data from 2002-03 are also used to provide background trend ...
  • Sequeira, Richard (Queensland Department of Primary Industriesu, 2005-06-30)
    At a July 2004 meeting of the CHCG&IA Research and Technical Subcommittee it was resolved that DPI&F research staff develop a strategy to meet the regional R&D needs of the Emerald area, as identified in a discussion paper ...
  • Vaesson, Scott; O'Halloran, Julie; Johnson, Annie; Rourke, Kirrily; Smith, Rebecca; Ginns, Steve; Sands, Doug (NSW Department of Primary Industries, Queensland Department of Primary Industries and, 2005-06-30)
    The focus of this position is the promotion and adoption of new technologies and best management practices to ensure the industry’s sustainability and continued development. The Cotton Industry Development Officer for ...
  • Constable, Greg (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2005-06-30)
    This project has part funded field operation costs charged by DPI to CSIRO for experiments on ACRI at Narrabri. More than 21 projects have been supported over the three years and all field operations have been done well ...
  • Bange, Michael (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2005-06-30)
    Cotton growers are facing increasing pressure to manage resources more cost effectively and to be more accountable for the impact their decisions have on the surrounding environment. Decision support systems (DSS) have ...
  • de Barro, Paul (Queensland Department of Primary Industries, 2005-06-30)
    Internationally, sticky cotton is a major concern for the textile industry (Hector & Hodkinson 1989). Physiological plant sugars in immature fibres, contaminants from crushed seed and seed coat fragments, grease, oil and ...
  • Wu, Yingru (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2005-06-30)
    Genomic technologies are set to revolutionise plant biology and we have already seen significant advances in the rate of gene discovery and new ideas engendered by the sequencing of genomes from two model plants, Arabidopsis ...
  • Grundy, Paul (Queensland Department of Primary Industriesu, 2005-06-30)
    The primary purpose of DAQ 122C was to investigate alternative pest management options under central Queensland conditions with a view to supporting and expanding the role of area wide management. The project accomplished ...
  • Kelly, Bryce (2005-06-30)
    Electrical resistivity imaging has been validated as a technique that can show the two dimensional movement of water through the soil profile after the application of irrigation water. Water movement can be inferred ...
  • Dillon, Martin (CSIRO Entomology, 2005-06-30)
    This project validated and enhanced the use of the BDI as a measure of the relative disruption (‘softness’/’hardness’) of the insecticide regimes applied to cotton fields. The project focused on two Area-Wide Management ...
  • Whitehouse, Mary (CSIRO Entomology, 2005-06-30)
    Little is known about the main predators of emerging pests in Bt cotton. To fill this gap a marking technique using ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay), was adapted to assess predation on mirids, Helicoverpa eggs, ...
  • Wilson, Lewis (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2005-06-30)
    Over the past 10 years the rapid uptake of IPM and transgenic cotton has allowed a dramatic reduction in the use of insecticides in cotton. However, new technologies bring new challenges, and amongst these for Bollgard II® ...
  • Rossiter, Louise (NSW Department of Primary Industries, 2005-06-30)
    Insecticide resistance in the cotton bollworm Helicoverpa armigera has been one of the greatest limitations to successful pest control and economic cotton production in Australia. The introduction of transgenic cotton has ...
