    FUSCOM has always been an excellent means to encourage collaboration between research groups within Australia and communicate research activities to various groups. But one of the greatest assets of this meeting is the ...
  • Cottee, Nicola (Cotton Australia, 2015-06-30)
    CottonMap is currently an ongoing annual investment. The Cotton Field Awareness Map pinpoints the location of cotton fields, to assist in minimising off-target damage from downwind pesticide application, particularly ...
  • O'Callaghan, Kate; Cowlick, Tom (Southern Valley CGA, 2015-06-30)
    The Southern Valleys CGA had seen other valleys participate in Back Paddock nutrition workshops and identified this as a need in our region. We sought ways to better engage our cotton growers as many of them are new to ...
  • Bell, Mike (University of Queensland, 2015-06-30)
    Current nutrient management strategies are based primarily on the concept of cost effective nutrient management (i.e. deriving an economic return from fertilizer investment), unless managers have consciously embarked on a ...
  • Woods, Nicholas; Cattanach, Gavin (National Working Party for Pesticide Applications (NWPPA), 2017-06-30)
    The National Working Party on Pesticide Applications (NWPPA) has been working since 2010 to bring a national, coordinated technical approach to spray drift issues. Our vision is that the regulatory system is science based ...
  • Roughley, Alexander (Menindee and Lower Darling Cotton Growers Association, 2015-06-30)
    The Menindee and Lower Darling Cotton Growing Association (MLD CGA) is one of a number of CGA organisation's formed throughout cotton growing areas in Australia by local growers and sponsored by Cotton Australia with the ...

    The purpose of this travel sponsorship was to attend and present the researchers findings at the 6th Congress of European Microbiologists (FEMS Federation of European Microbiological Societies), Maastricht, the Netherlands. ...
  • Whitehouse, Mary (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2015-06-30)
    The overall aim of this project is to improve the ability of refuges to counter both the threat of resistance developing via genetic mutation, and the potential threat of crop failure via inducible tolerance. By accessing ...

  • Montgomery, Janelle (NSW Department of Primary Industries, 2015-06-30)
    In June 2014, irrigation researchers met in Narrabri for IrriCOMM. This workshop arose from discussion between CSIRO, CRDC and NSW DPI about irrigation research. The tools that irrigators are using to manage their ...
  • Lower, Tony (University of Sydney, 2015-06-30)
    To maximise improvements in work health and safety, it is vital to have the best available evidence available to understand the risks that exist. In turn, this can help to define the best control solutions to reduce these ...
  • Ryu, Jaeeun (CSIRO Biosecurity Flagship, 2015-06-30)
    Resistance to insecticides has repeatedly developed in Helicoverpa armigera around the world and is of major concern to the cotton industry in Australia. CYP337B3, the gene responsible for fenvalerate resistance was ...
  • Holman, Sharna (University of Sydney, 2015-06-30)
    Helicoverpa punctigera, along with Helicoverpa armigera, are major pests in Australian cotton. They are currently controlled using “Bt cotton” which contain genes derived from the bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis, that ...
  • Ullah, Najeeb (University of Sydney, 2015-06-30)
    Climatic variability, typified by erratic heavy-rainfall events can cause soil waterlogging and yield losses in irrigated cotton. This project investigated the physiological mechanisms of waterlogging damage to cotton crops ...
  • Bell, Mike (University of Queensland, 2015-06-30)
