CottonInfo has today announced that a new Communications Lead - Megan Woodward - has joined our team.  

Megan will support the CottonInfo team in providing the latest research to growers and consultants, helping them to achieve best practice.

“Megan brings a passion for agriculture and extensive experience in science communications to the role of CottonInfo Communications Lead,” said CottonInfo Program Manager, Warwick Waters.  

“Megan’s role will be to help connect growers with relevant industry research and best practice, supporting them to continue to increase their farm productivity and sustainability. We are delighted to have her on board, and on behalf of the CottonInfo joint venture partners, we welcome Megan to the team,” Warwick said.
