Cotton Seed Distributors (CSD)

CSD and CSIRO have been working together since 1971, with over 116 cotton varieties released to the Australian market.

This partnership was formalised in 2007, through the formation of the Cotton Breeding Australia (CBA) joint venture - a targeted research fund set up to facilitate the research and development of future cotton varieties for Australian growers.

Since 2007, the CBA collaboration has invested over $140 million towards this research; and in 2018, the partnership was formally extended to June 2029.

The cotton breeding cycle from initial crossing to commercial release can take up to ten years, therefore the success of the CBA joint venture is a result of the long term commitment of both staff and funding.
