Aussie cotton organizations announce investment in R&D

Cotton Australia, the Cotton Research and Development Corporation (CRDC), and Cotton Seed Distributors (CSD) announced at the 16th Australian Cotton Conference an all-new collaborative investment which is set to result in a significant expansion of specialist extension information and R&D information services across the cotton growing regions in time for the 2012-13 crop.

By the end of September, Australia’s cotton growers will be well into planting a third-successive big crop. Keeping pace with the demand for information services in a growing and progressive industry the three key providers  of  Research and Development (R&D) information across industry are collaborating to expand a range of services to Australian cotton growers.

The three leading cotton industry organisations have pledged a long-term commitment and funding that will result in an efficient and effective pathway for the delivery of the outputs of industry R&D for five years.

The collaboration will be resourced and managed by Cotton Australia, CRDC, and CSD.

An amount of $4m is pledged annually to resource and manage delivery of R&D information.  This will see an expansion of regional services in many cotton districts to work with farmers looking to improve practices and adopt best practice. The cotton industry is committed to ensure that every grower is geared for success with every crop.

Improved communications of trusted advice and specialist technical knowledge is a vital ingredient of successful cotton production.  Trusted information will be readily available due in part through local facilitators and enhanced communication between researchers, growers, consultants, agribusiness, natural resource management agencies and cotton industry organisations.

Leading this complex and important new service will be Dr Ian Taylor of Narrabri, NSW.  Ian Taylor is widely regarded across all sectors of the cotton industry for his practical solutions based approach.

In addition to the appointment and resourcing of new people in the field, new resources for online delivery of information that includes myBMP, information websites and mobile APPs will result in improved responsiveness to grower needs as the season unfolds.
