  • Dodd, Kylie (University of New England, 2007-06-30)
    This PhD project aims to determine the mechanisms, by which soil sodicity impacts on the uptake of nutrients and growth of cotton crops, in order that soil sodium levels can be factored into crop nutritional management ...
  • Rochester, Ian (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2007-06-30)
    This project has advanced the use of soil and tissue testing such that growers and advisors are now better able to optimise fertiliser use and have greater confidence in their management practices to provide sound nutrition ...
  • Kochman, Joe (Queensland Department of Primary Industries, 2007-06-30)
    Fusarium wilt continues to be an important constraint to sustainable cotton production. This project had a number of objectives to obtain data to improve the management of this disease. Even though it has been dry, ...
