Improving crop establishment, termination and weed control in dryland cotton farming systems

This project examines planting tactics that might improve the establishment of cotton seedlings in dryland cotton systems. It also develops and tests the reliability of crop destruction tactics that minimise cultivation. One such tactic is AquaTill Injecticide, which incorporates herbicide with ultra-high-pressure water cutting, offering an alternative method of crop termination with minimal soil disturbance post-harvest.
