Abstract: The spring edition of CRDC's magazine, Spotlight, highlights the improved performance of the cotton industry on many levels. In this issue, hear from Goondiwindi grower Nigel Corish, who reports on the outcomes of his Nuffield Scholarship (supported by CRDC and Cotton Australia) into nitrogen use efficiency and soil health. Read about the growers who achieved record yields, and the practices they employed on-farm to help reach them (plus the researchers working in this field about the potential for further yield increases). Meet Victorian innovator Peter Cocciardi who invented a flow-regulating valve "capable of revolutionising the irrigation sector in Australia," and the recipients of the 2015 Cotton Industry Awards, including CRDC Director and St George cotton grower Cleave Rogan. And take a look at the findings from the Australian Cotton Comparative Analysis, produced by Boyce Chartered Accountants and CRDC, which reveals financial performance and profitability information for growers.
