Improving grower decision in complex systems: A targeted tool to assist cotton growers in appropriate technology adoption

Adoption choices of appropriate technology and digital systems for a farm business enterprise are often difficult to make given the array of factors that need to be considered, including financial, environmental and, just as importantly, often unrecognised personal attitudes and biases. This project seeks to develop a personalised tool to assist a grower to identify and prioritise appropriate technologies in which to invest, ones that are suited to their unique social, environmental and economic circumstances and trajectory.

Characteristics of disease suppressive cotton farming systems and soils understood

Soil borne diseases continue to be one of the major constraints to cotton production. This project helps to identify soil biological and physico-chemical elements to quantify disease suppression potential and identify management practices that promote disease suppressive systems. The project is delivering key diagnostics, surveillance, and response
