Cotton production course

The Cotton Production Course is the only university-level qualification specialising in cotton production. Over the past 10 years, 630 students have enroled in the course at the University of New England, with support from the former Cotton Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs) and CRDC. The course is delivered at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and consists of four cotton units: applied cotton production; cotton protection; cotton and the environment; and cotton farming systems. The units are based on strong practical and scientific principles, with the latest research and farming practices incorporated into the teaching materials via close collaboration with cotton industry partners. The benefit of the Cotton Production Course to the industry is an enhanced scientific-based understanding across the workforce, assisting with the invention and adoption of improved practices.
