  • Furbank, Robert; Llewellyn, Danny; Ruan, Yong-Ling (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1998-08-14)
    Despite the great potential for increasing cotton productivity through the genetic engineering of fibre development, little progress has so far been made in this area. This is in sharp contrast to the success of pest and ...
  • Peoples, Mark; Rochester, Ian (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1998-08-14)
    Although cotton is grown on fertile soils, commonly nutrient deficiencies become apparent due to many factors. Cotton has a high demand for many nutrients which are taken up over a period of weeks (Table I). Nutrient ...
  • Hearn, Brian (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1998-08-14)

  • McBratney, Alexander; Whelan, Brett; Boydell, Broughton (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1998-08-14)
    Precision Agriculture (PA) involves the management of sites or regions within a field based on local requirements rather than field average requirements. Historical best management practice involves the careful determination ...

  • Pailthorpe, Michael; Allen, Stephen (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1998-08-14)
    Microbial damage to raw cotton, sometimes referred to as weathering damage, is a common event in most parts of the world. Microbes, viz. bacteria and fungi, are omnipresent in the environment. In the case of cotton production, ...
  • Llewellyn, Danny; Grover, Anita; de Feyter, Rob; Dennis, Liz; McFadden, Helen (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1998-08-14)
    Conventional plant breeding has done much to improve cotton's tolerance to pests and diseases. However, fungal diseases such as Verticillium and Fusarium wilts remain important factors minting yield under certain ...
  • Punch, Gary (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1998-08-14)
    In his paper to you, Mike Logan, our youngest Cotton Australia Board Director, said to you, &quote;unless we have the support of the local communities, we are doomed to extinction&quote;. To that I would like to add that ...
  • Constable, Greg (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1998-08-14)
