    The Cotton Research and Development Corporation have demonstrated a strong commitment to supporting research in water use efficiency across the industry. One component of water use in irrigation is the identification of ...
  • Baker, Geoffrey (CSIRO Entomology, 2006-06-30)
    Transgenic (Bt) cotton varieties provide a substantial basis for economically and environmentally sustainable insect pest management within the Australian cotton industry. The introduction of Bt cotton has significantly ...
  • Orford, Sharon (University of Adelaide, 2006-06-30)
    The Australian cotton industry occupies a niche market in optimal fibre quality, but this must be constantly developed in order to “stay ahead”. Biotechnology provides an opportunity to continually improve fibre quality ...

  • Sundstrom, Joanna (University of Adelaide, 2006-06-30)
    Cotton fibres are differentiated single cells, originating from the epidermal layer of the cotton ovule. Cotton fibre quality is determined by its length, strength and fineness properties, which are largely controlled ...
  • Tennakoon, Sunil; Wilson, Lewis; Cain, Jo (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2006-06-30)
    Water continues to be a major constraint for cotton production systems. There is increasing pressure to improve the water use efficiency (WUE), especially of the furrow irrigation systems used by the majority of cotton ...
  • Naylor, Geoffrey (CSIRO Textile and Fibre Technology, 2006-06-30)
    The commonly used Micronaire value for cotton is related to both fibre fineness (weight per unit length) and maturity. There is a need for a new measurement technique to separate these. This is of particular importance ...
