In June 1993, Mr Neville Gould, Team Leader, Agricultural Engineering, NSW Agriculture, Trangie travelled to the USA for 30 days to investigate for the Australian cotton industry the issues of anhydrous ammonia application, cotton stalk and ginning trash management, non-chemical weed control, machinery design and soil compaction. Discussions were held with engineers from both John Deere and Case IH, the two machinery manufacturing companies contributing to the Australian cotton industry with the view to increasing their awareness of Australian industry needs. Mr Gould also attended the American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) Summer Meeting in Spokane, where contacts of substantial future benefit were made and liaison between the ASAE and its Australian counterpart, the Society For Engineering In Agriculture was formally enhanced.
