Spotlight Magazine - Autumn 2015

April, 2015

The Autumn edition of CRDC's quarterly Spotlight magazine, Spotlight, looks at the delivery of CRDC-funded R&D on farm.

In this edition, read about the CRDC/CottonInfo events, the 2015 Irrigation Technology Tour and the Big Days Out, which took leading irrigation and energy use efficiency researchers on-farm across the cotton growing valleys to showcase their R&D to growers and consultants. Hear more about the 'cotton under plastics' trial in Central QLD (which has now been picked); and learn about a new ginning seed finger mechanism that could increase the average Australian growers' turn out by an extra 120 bales. Plus we take an indepth look at Fusarium and Verticillium wilts - which have been prevalent in some areas this season.
