    To examine the genetic similarity of cotton cultivars available in Australia, twelve cultivars of Gossypium hirsutum, together with an American Pima cotton (G. barbadense) cultivar, were subjected to genetic fingerprint ...
  • Constable, Greg; McBratney, A .B.; Triantafilisa, J. (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Since the late 1980's secondary soil salinisation has been recognised as a potentially threatening problem in many of the irrigated cotton growing areas. This has been most apparent in the lower Macquarie valley and ...
  • West,Karyl-Lee (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Australian cotton production areas are prone to significant damage by hail storms. Following a hail strike, a grower is left with trying to make the most out of what remains of his crop. There are few guidelines or criteria ...
  • Liul,Qing; Singh, Surinder; Sharp, Peter; Green , Allan; Marshall,D.R. (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Oils having very high levels of oleic acid have superior stability and are valuable for frying and other high temperature applications. Oils with equal proportion of palmitic acid, oleic acid, stearic acid, namely, the POS ...
  • Scholz, Brad; Murray, Dave; Lloyd, Richard (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    The Queensland Department of Primary Industries is currently investigating IRM techniques for heliothis in cotton and some vegetable crops. The research includes evaluation of native egg parasitoids as biological control ...
  • Tann, Colin; Fitt, Gary (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    The imminent release of transgenic cotton brings with it the need for some changes in production techniques to provide effective refuges as part of the pre-emptive resistance management strategy (see papers by Fitt and ...
  • Casey, Trevor (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Over the last six or seven years, seasonal forecasts provided by the Bureau of Meteorology's National Climate Centre have been based on statistical relationships between rainfall and the EI Nino-Southern Oscillation ...
  • Beckingham,Mike (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    To grow in this environment, an environment in which external forces have traditionally driven and shaped the agenda, the Industry needs leaders who have the knowledge skills and networks to address the important issues, ...
  • McKewen, Lance; Deutscher, Sandra (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Since 1992, CSRO Cotton Research Unit has conducted large scale insect management trials in the upper and lower Namoi Valley. The trials have utilised large field areas on privately owned farms, generally in collaboration ...
  • McBratney A.B.; Triantafilis, J. (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    In the following paper some of the results of this research (US05C) are shown. In addition, some of the future work (US22C) that is planned including the construction of a vehicle that is capable of carrying several EM ...
  • Lacey, Ian; Heading, Lincoln; Yeats, Steve; Strickland, Geoff (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Total dependence on broad spectrum insecticides led to nerve insensitivity resistance in Helicoverpa armigera and, eventually, to the collapse of the previously successful cotton industry at Kununurra in 1974. The final ...
  • Matthews, Marcus; Christian, Peter; Richards, Andrew (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    One approach in the drive by the cotton industry to introduce more effective and more sustainable methods of bollworm control than are presently available, has been to develop a new generation of insecticides based on ...
  • Whitaker, Richard (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Weather prediction has been gradually improving over the last decade or so, with several factors contributing to the improvement. The two main contributors have been the advent, refining and increased frequency of satellite ...
  • Shaw Rodger; Gordon, Ian (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Salinity problems are due to the presence of a high concentration of soluble salts in soils or waters. Salinity processes are natural processes closely linked with landscape and soil formation processes,however, human ...
  • Morris , P.R.; Cameron,D. F.; Naidu,B. P. (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 1996-08-16)
    Glycinebetaine is a compound that some plants accumulate as a defence against stress conditions. In this paper we demonstrate that the application of glycinebetaine to cotton seed increased plant yield. Seed germination ...
