Dr Priscilla Johnston, a chemist in CSIRO’s Manufacturing division, has been awarded the cotton Science and Innovation Award in Canberra overnight.

The award, provided by ABARES with support from CRDC, was awarded by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, the Hon. Barnaby Joyce, at the annual ABARES dinner.

Priscilla’s project focuses on helping cotton growers make the most of available water resources through the introduction of a new ‘smart’ polymer she created for use in agriculture as part of her postdoctoral research.
