Fact Sheets

This booklet was produced for CottonInfo's Cotton Nutrition Tour, which took place in February 2016. CottonInfo took 10 CRDC-funded researchers out to cotton farms in five cotton growing valleys across five days, to deliver the latest outcomes from cotton nutrition research. 

This fact sheet, from CottonInfo and myBMP's series of NRM best practice fact sheets, outlines how growers can maintain important habitat features on their farms. 

This fact sheet, from CottonInfo and myBMP's series of NRM best practice fact sheets, outlines how growers can maintain wetlands on their farms. 

This fact sheet, from CottonInfo and myBMP's series of NRM best practice fact sheets, outlines how to create a farm map. 

This fact sheet, from CottonInfo and myBMP's series of NRM best practice fact sheets, outlines what you need to know re whole farm planning. 

This fact sheet, from CottonInfo and myBMP's series of NRM best practice fact sheets, outlines the NSW and QLD flora and fauna legislation. 

The Smarter Irrigation for Profit project aims to improve the profit of 3,000 cotton, dairy, rice and sugar irrigators by $20,000 - $40,000 per annum, with the support of 16 Research and Development partners and 19 farmer irrigation technology
learning sites.

The Gwydir Valley Irrigators Association (GVIA) is leading an irrigation systems comparisions trial at Moree, comparing the traditional furrow system with bankless channel, lateral move and subsurface drip irrigation. This fact sheet outlines the purpose of the trial.

A water budget needs to be prepared at the beginning of each season to estimate how much cotton can be grown with the available water. A water budget is part of risk management - that is, it helps to reduce the risk of not having enough water to finish a crop.

Irrigation scheduling involves applying the right amount of water, in the right place at the right time in order to maximise production and improve water use efficiency.

There has been an increase in the use of super single (33 per cent planted area) row configurations in raingrown cotton in areas where rainfall is unreliable; and alternate row (50 per cent planted area) configurations instead of double row to take advantage of equidistant spacing to improve yiel

Growing raingrown (dryland) cotton has become easier in recent times due to major improvements in the farming system.
