Fact Sheets

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.

This series from CottonInfo and NSW DPI outlines exotic cotton pests and diseases, including key information on what to look for, how the pest or disease is spread, and what to do if you suspect it on your farm.

The establishment of vegetative barriers on cotton farms can greatly minimise the potential for spray drift to cause damage to sensitive areas.
