  • Scholz, B; Murray, D; Lloyd, R; Cleary, A (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2000-08-16)
    The current cotton industry IPM guidelines promote the use of predator/prey ratios when making pest management decisions. This involves assessing the numbers of key predators within the cotton crop. Many species of insects ...
  • Bedrossian, S; Singh, B; Wright, P (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2000-08-16)
    In Australia, premature senescence (PS) is occurring with increasing frequency in cotton crops on soils with high levels of available K. However, by the time PS is noticed, it is generally too late to take corrective ...
  • Daly, Joanne; Olsen, Karen (Australian Cotton Growers Research Association, 2000-08-16)
