Cotton Australia major achievements 2012-13
On-farm support & member services
Secured essential movement of machinery: red tape was strangling growers’ ability to move essential machinery and product including pickers, modules and ginned bales. Cotton Australia negotiated common-sense outcomes with NSW and Queensland Governments that ensured the industry could pick and move the crop.
Reduced industry-wide Phenoxy damage by two-thirds: Cotton Australia’s ongoing Phenoxy drift reduction program was a massive campaign using media, public briefings, advertising and farmer resources. It achieved a reduction in Phenoxy damage from 11% three years ago to less than 3% in 2012.
Lobbied for and achieved critical disaster relief: Cotton Australia lobbying secured Category C and D assistance for growers impacted by flooding in areas including Emerald, Biloela, the Darling Downs, Goondiwindi and Lower Balonne
Completed essential groundwork for the record crop: the organisation proactively communicated with suppliers and financiers to ensure the cotton industry was geared up, and funded for, Australia’s biggest ever cotton crop
Prevented a proposed ban on Diuron: the Australian Government proposed to suspend use of Diuron for the industry. Cotton Australia negotiated with government to successfully thwart the ban for cotton. Other industries now endure a ban on Diuron
United the industry via the Australian Cotton Conference: more than 1600 delegates attended the Australian Cotton Conference, discussing ideas and policy issues to move the industry forward. Levy paying growers received a discount on attendance fees
Guaranteed a voice for growers in all regions: Cotton Australia contracted local regional managers to ensure messaging from growers reaches important stakeholders and decisionmakers, including government at all levels
Safe machinery assessments in QLD: Cotton Australia secured funding to carry out over 300 machinery assessments with growers and their staff to ensure they are ticketed.
