Cotton Australia CEO Adam Kay said, “The one thing all the recipients have in common is that they are constantly testing the boundaries of what can be achieved in their respective fields. Whether it’s making improvements to sustainability and water efficiency on farm, delivering crucial new research to farmers, making outstanding contributions to industry or leading the next generation of cotton growers - they’re all making significant advancements. The Australian Cotton Industry Awards are an important way of showcasing those who are achieving great things, and also a way of discovering new ambassadors for the industry.” (GK)
