The Spring edition of CRDC's quarterly magazine, Spotlight, is an Irrigation Special - focusing on the key water availability and water efficiency decisions for growers at the start of the 2014-15 cotton season. 

In this edition, we take a look at the world-leading research that CRDC is funding into scheduling for precision irrigation, and a grower-led, on-farm commercial scale irrigation trial comparing four alternative systems - furrow, overhead, drip and bankless - to see how they compare in 'real world' situations. We also take an in-depth look at the first ever cotton industry Herbicide Resistance Management Strategy - a valuable tool in industry-wide efforts to control herbicide resistance - and a look back at the 17th Australian Cotton Conference, held in August.
