  • Biosecurity & disease management

    Biosecurity is the management of the risk of pests and diseases entering, emerging, establishing or spreading, in order to avoid production losses and new management and eradication costs.

  • CottonInfo manuals, guides, paks & tools

    CottonInfo manuals, guides, paks & tools

  • CottonInfo newsletters, fact sheets & case studies

    Newsletters, fact sheets and case studies across all CottonInfo topics.

  • CottonInfo regional newsletters

    Region specific newsletters from CottonInfo Regional Development Officers

  • Crop nutrition

    Getting your crop nutrition spot on is essential for maximising cotton yield.

  • Energy use efficiency & carbon

    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.

  • Fibre quality

    Managing your crop for increased fibre quality

  • Insect management & stewardship

    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 resource management

    Natural areas on and surrounding cotton farms provide benefits to the farming enterprise, known as ecosystem services.

  • Pesticide input efficiency

    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.

  • Raingrown cotton

    Information of specific use to raingrown (dryland) cottongrowers

  • Soil health

    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.

  • Weed management

    Integrated weed management (IWM) is a strategy to manage existing herbicide resistance and prolong the useful life of herbicide groups.

  • Water management

    Helping you make the most of your water: achieving maximum production from available water resources in any given season.
