Each year, Crop Consultants Australia - with support from CRDC - conduct a qualitative survey of cotton consultants regarding their practices and attitudes, as well as those of their cotton grower clients. The resulting report provides valuable information to the Australian cotton industry regarding on-farm practices , helping to benchmark the industry's performance in a range of key areas over time. This report, published in December 2016, looks at the 2015-16 cotton growing season.

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.
