Australian cotton growers are being urged to nominate themselves or someone they know for the 2024 Australian Cotton Industry Awards – celebrating excellence in the way Australian farmers grow cotton.

Demand for our sustainable product is increasing in Australia and globally. Along with large national crops in 2022 and 2023, and predictions of another significant crop in 2024, the Australian cotton industry is going from strength to strength due to research, innovation and improved farming practices and the commitment of growers to continuously improve their sustainability and environmental outcomes.

  • Bayer Grower of the Year

  • AgriRisk High Achiever of the Year

  • CRDC Chris Lehmann Young Cotton Achiever of the Year
