Managing cotton quality to maintain Australia's premium status (includes CottonInfo technical lead and myBMP module lead)

This project aims to preserve the premium status of Australian cotton, which has excellent fibre characteristics and low levels of contamination. The project has five main strands: investigating the effects of different nitrogen fertilisation rates; establishing the impact of stripper harvesting; evaluating defoliation practices; investigating the incidence and severity of seed coat fragments in cotton lint; and investigating the reasons for variability in gin trash composition. It provides technical leadership to CottonInfo and industry associations, as well as technical solutions and post-harvest support via forums, liaison with grower (valley) groups, field days and conferences.
