  • Roth, Guy (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    Satellites, airborne imaging systems and hand held instruments are frequently proposed as indicators of crop stress caused by water, soil compaction, lack of nutrients, diseases and mites. Laboratory experiments have shown ...
  • Alter, D; Gregg, P.C; Tennant, R; Del Socorro, A.P; Moore, C (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    Helicoverpa spp. remain the key pests of cotton in Australia. The cotton bollworm, H. armigera is becoming resistant to many insecticides. With this increasing resistance as well as environmental concerns with insecticide ...
  • Diener, Andrew; Ellis, Jeff; McFadden, Helen (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    Fusarium oxysporum f.sp vasinfectum, (FOV) the causal organism of Fusarium wilt, is a significant threat to the Australian cotton industry. It is therefore essential that various strategies for the development of solutions ...
  • NFF (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    The objective of NFF's trade strategy is to achieve a more profitable international trading environment for Australia's farmers. To realise this goal Australia has to expand its international lobbying effort for agricultural ...
  • Silburn, Mark; Vervoort, Willem (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    Water-use efficiency of cotton production and minimising the impact of the cotton industry on the environment have emerged as issues of great importance. To improve these issues two major questions need to be answered: 1. ...
  • Weaver, T; Hulugalle, N; Ghadiri, H (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    Electromagnetic (EM) surveys in combination with computer models, like Sodium-SaLF, and chloride mass balance models have been used to estimate deep drainage under irrigated soils with high clay content (Wills and Black ...
  • Wade, Mark; Zalucki, Myron; Franzmann, Bernie (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    The important role that beneficial arthropods play in cotton farming systems is increasingly being recognised across the industry. Many growers and consultants are now growing unsprayed 'nursery' crops to generate ...
  • Milroy, Stephen; Bange, Michael (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    Temperature plays many important roles in the growth and development of cotton. Low temperatures after sowing increase the time to emergence and reduce seedling vigour often leading to poor establishment, poor early growth ...
  • Ward, Andrew (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    Northern Australia has long presented a series of problems in terms of sustainable cotton insect management. This is exemplified by the failure of the Ord cotton industry in the early 1970's under extreme insect pressure. ...
  • Charles, Graham; Taylor, Ian (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    The majority of cotton growers in the Australian cotton industry are familiar with an integrated approach to insect pest management. Researchers and agronomists often tout integrated pest management or IPM as the most ...
  • Gordon, B; Nicholls, J; Talukder, F; Hassan, E; Woods, N; Dorr, G (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    Ground rig and aerial application treatments were setup to deliver endosulfan to young cotton using 'large droplet placement' (LDP). Both treatments delivered similar amounts of the product to the target, despite ...
  • Parker, Nathaniel; Lloyd, Richard; Scholz, Brad (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    The DPI has been evaluating unsprayed strip crops planted beside dryland INGARD cotton as nurseries for beneficial arthropods over the past three seasons. This work has included evaluations of lablab, soybean, maize and ...
  • Nehl, David; Mondal, Anowar; Jhorar, Om (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    Black rootrot of cotton has been observed in 98 per cent of the farms regularly surveyed by NSW Agriculture in the Macquarie, Namoi, Gwydir and Macintyre valleys. The disease has potential to cause up to 40 per cent yield ...
  • James, B; Bird, Lisa; Akhurst, R (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    Control of Helicoverpa armigera is being forced towards minimising reliance on broad spectrum insecticides. Serious environmental concerns have emerged over the extensive use of highly toxic, non-specific compounds to ...
  • Johnson, Stephen (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    WEEDpak is a compilation of information on the management of weeds in the Australian cotton industry. The major theme throughout WEEDpak is the management of weeds through integrated weed management (IWM) principles. It ...
  • Charles, Graham; Inchbold, Benita; Taylor, Ian (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    The Australian cotton industry has, until recently, relied largely upon residual pre-plant and pre-emergent herbicides for weed control in irrigated production systems. These herbicides provide good protection against a ...
  • Miles, Melina; Ferguson, Julie (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    Area-wide pest management (AWM) has had a high profile introduction to the cotton and grains industries on the Downs since 1998 and prior to that in the cotton industry in Emerald. All Cotton-growing valleys in Australia ...
  • Allen, Stephen (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
    It is widely recognized that &quote;Plant diseases are a man-made problem&quote;. Our current farming systems are 'pathogen-friendly'. All of the pathogens that cause diseases of cotton are favoured by one, or in ...
  • Dillon, Martin; Farquharson; Hoque, Ziaul (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2002-08-13)
