Knowledge is fundamental to improving the competitiveness, responsiveness
and levels of innovation that we see in industries. This research project completed interviews with

This project has part funded maintenance of HVI900 and FMT3 cotton fibre testing instruments in CSIRO’s fibre testing laboratory at ACRI for the 2005/06 season.
MacKinnon, Leah (Border Rivers Gwydir CMA, 2006-06-30)
Where remnants of old native vegetation remain, small nocturnal insectivorous microbats have probably provided agricultural production services by reducing insect populations in two ways: direct predation, and interru

The cotton boll contains the seeds of the plant to which long, white fibres are attached. The cotton industry takes advantage of these fibres to spin yarns for textile production.

of water from below the root zone is the most elusive component of the water balance to measure.
Humphries, John (University Of Adelaide, 2006-06-30)
To achieve a greater understanding of the regulation of cotton fibre differentiation, more fundamental information is needed on the signals and mechanisms associated with fibre initiation.
The overall objective of this project was to develop improved conventional and transgenic cotton varieties adapted to Australian growing conditions and producing fibre suitable for our markets.
Machado, Adriane (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2006-06-30)
Despite the long history of cotton production and research, little is known about the genes that control the initiation and growth of the cells on the outer surface of the seed that become fibres.
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
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.
Williams, Allan (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2006-06-30)
The Australian cotton industry has had in place since 1997 a voluntary environmental
management system – its Best Management Practice (BMP) Program – that has successfully
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”.
McBratney, Alex (University Of Sydney, 2006-06-30)
The Cotton Research and Development Corporation have demonstrated a strong commitment to supporting research in water use efficiency across the industry.
Van Der Sluijs, Rene (CSIRO Textile And Fibre Technology, 2006-06-30)
There is consensus both locally and internationally that the measurement of cotton grade i.e., colour, trash and grade, by the traditional subjective classing should be replaced with objective measurements by high vol
Knox, Oliver (CSIRO Entomology, 2006-06-30)
Experiments to establish if the use of GM cotton has an impact on the soil microbes that grow in association with the plant roots has shown that there are no differences in number or function when compared to non-GM c

The Cotton Research and Development Corporation (CRDC) has made significant R&D investments in soil health research over recent years.
Shaw, Gus (CSIRO Plant Industry, 2006-06-30)
Cotton growers generally recognise crop performance or yield as the best indicator of soil biology.
Young, Sandy (Auscott And The Australian Cotton Centre, 2006-06-30)
