2016 Cotton Growing Practices: Findings of CRDC's survey of cotton growers

May, 2017

The Cotton Growing Practices 2016 survey was conducted in Spring 2016. It gathered information on farming practices and views of cotton growers about the 2015-16 season on the issues of nutrition, plant growth regulation, farm hygiene, chemical application management, harvesting, solar energy, CottonInfo and participation in research trials. This information is collated and analysed as an industry data set to help inform cotton research and industry policy and provide information for cotton growers about management practices across their industry.

Survey responses were received from 176 growers, representing 35 per cent of the irrigated and 15 per cent of the dryland 2015-16 crop area.
