Abstract: Rising energy costs are no surprise to farmers. Peak oil and an exponentially expanding world population are maintaining strong upward pressure on the price of energy.Cotton is sensitive to energy price because it is a high-input crop that relies on energy intensive inputs such as diesel fertilisers and chemicals. This is why the Cotton Research and Development Corporation (CRDC) has initiated projects to meet the energy challenge for Australian cotton production into the future.
