The key highlights, achievements and impacts resulting from CRDC's investments in cotton RD&E during 2017-18 have today been tabled in Parliament as part of CRDC's Annual Report.
2017-18 marked a significant year for CRDC – the culmination of five years investment under the 2013-18 Strategic RD&E Plan, and its resulting impact. In this final year, we invested in 318 RD&E projects across five key program areas (farmers, industry, customers, people and performance), working collaboratively with 118 researcher partners and growers.
In all, CRDC invested $25.1 million into cotton RD&E on behalf of Australia’s cotton growers and the Australian Government during 2017-18 – continuing our long-standing commitment to delivering real outcomes for growers and enhancing the industry’s performance.
Highlights from the year can be found in the 2017-18 Annual Report, the Annual Report Grower Summary, and the infographic - available here.
