This week, two new grower focused tools have been added to the CottonInfo website: the Cotton Rotation Tool and the Glyphosate Resistance Toolkit.
The Cotton Rotation Tool allows growers to compare the advantages and disadvantages of different rotational crops in relation to the subsequent cotton crop. It covers sunflowers, soybeans, maize, sorghum, mung beans, pigeon peas, chickpeas, faba beans, lucerne, canola, safflower and more.
The Glyphosate Resistance Toolkit helps growers to understand, prevent and manage herbicide resistance. It contains tools to help growers calculate the glyphosate resistance risk score for a paddock and a level of risk for each weed; plus compare different management scenarios. It also helps growers test their knowledge of herbicide resistance. The toolkit has been developed by the QLD Department of Agriculture and Fisheries with support from CRDC, GRDC, the former Cotton CRC and Monsanto Australia.
