Cotton growers in Queensland and northern part of New South Wales are considering whether it is worth to save their crops or not as the flood waters in both these areas have already receded.

Cotton crops account for around 25 percent of the total crop damages that have been caused due to floods.

Cotton growers had gathered at the Cecil Plains located in the southern part of Queensland to discuss various ways and means by which they could save their cotton crops from waterlogged conditions.

According to an expert, it is very significant for the cotton growers to obtain all the necessary information so that they can arrive at a suitable decision regarding the rescue of their crops.

He further added that several alternatives were considered by the cotton growers in order to deal with the situation. The Cotton Co-operative Research Centre is simply providing its support to the decisions taken by the farmers.
