Getting your crop nutrition spot on is essential for maximising cotton yield.
Energy is one of the fastest growing costs for cotton growers, with electricity and diesel accounting for a significant proportion of total farm input costs. Energy (electricity, diesel and fertiliser) is also the major contributor to a cotton farm's GHG emissions.
Managing your crop for increased fibre quality
An integrated insect and mite management approach (otherwise known as Integrated Pest Management or IPM) incorporates a range of tactics and resources to reduce pest outbreaks and reduce the reliance on insecticides for their management.
Natural areas on and surrounding cotton farms provide benefits to the farming enterprise, known as ecosystem services.
Being more efficient with pesticide inputs has three main benefits for growers - it helps reduce farm costs; reduces environmental risks; and critically, limits the evolution of resistance in target insect pest and weed populations.

Soil health is the key to your farm's profit and production. It underpins the fertility and crop production of a farming enterprise, providing the cotton plant with water, oxygen, nutrients and support.
Helping you make the most of your water: achieving maximum production from available water resources in any given season.
Integrated weed management (IWM) is a strategy to manage existing herbicide resistance and prolong the useful life of herbicide groups.
