International research collaboration: CRDC visits CottonInc (24 July 2015)

This week, CRDC's Executive Director Bruce Finney, General Manager of R&D Ian Taylor, and R&D Manager Allan Williams travelled to the USA to meet with CRDC's US counterpart, CottonInc, to further discussions on international research collaboration.

The visit followed CottonInc's trip to Australia in March, where opportunities to cooperate on research was a key agenda item. 

The CRDC team met with CottonInc, Monsanto and Bayer to discuss international research developments into one of cotton's key pests, Helicoverpa armigera, and with the Climate Corporation and John Deere teams to discuss big data management.
