CottonInfo is designed to give you the information you need, when you need it, to help you make the best management decisions for your farm.
Our team consists of regional extension officers (our on the ground support team, based in the cotton growing valleys), technical specialists (specialists in a specific research areas and the point of contact to the wider cotton research community) and myBMP experts (team members who can help you sign up for, and participate in, the cotton industry’s best management practice program). Meet our team.
We specialise in a number of areas: nutrition, soil health, water management, pesticide use efficiency, energy use, carbon and climate, biosecurity, disease and insect management, natural resource management, stewardship and weed control.
We aim to achieve three things: improving industry practice, improving research and development communication, and improving industry responsiveness. We're doing this via on-farm programs and activities including:
- Our on-farm nitrogren trials, run by our team of regional development officers, into fertiliser efficiency and soil health.
- Our work in taking water use efficiency and irrigation system research and development onto farms through a series of CottonInfo events;
- Our soon-to-be-released Plus $500 program, which focuses on profitability and helping you to achieve the next $500/ha;
- Our efforts in sustainability and environmental stewardship: helping to improve efficiencies for the benefit of your bottom line and the environment.
