Case Studies

The Focus on water research series introduces you to the key cotton water researchers and their work. In this case study, Ben Crawley and David Perovic from NSW DPI outline their work in researching the water productivity of irrigated cotton, and the findings from their most recent benchmarking study.

The Focus on water research series introduces you to the key cotton water researchers and their work. In this case study, Dr Hiz Jamali from CSIRO explains the roll out of the canopy temperature sensor algorithm in technology to cotton growers.

The Focus on water research series introduces you to the key cotton water researchers and their work. In this case study, David Lawrence from QLD DAF explains his research, which is answering the question: Can cover crops increase infiltration and net water accumulation in pivot-irrigated cotton systems with low (less than 30 per cent) ground cover?

The Focus on water research series introduces you to the key cotton water researchers and their work. In this case study, Wendy Merritt from ANU outlines the investigation into the potential to implement Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) in the irrigated cotton growing regions of Australia, evaluating its feasibility across all facets (ie. financial, economic, technical, legislative, social and environmental).

The Focus on water research series introduces you to the key cotton water researchers and their work. In this case study, Greg Qiao from the University of Melbourne explains his research into evaporation mitigation solutions for Australian cotton farms. 

The Focus on NRM research series introduces you to the key cotton NRM researchers and their work.

Stewart Denston is an experienced cotton grower who has been trialling canopy temperature sensors (CTS) for the Macquarie Cotton Grower Association (CGA) since the 2014-15 season, including installing his own sensors in both heavier and lighter soils.

The Focus on NRM research series introduces you to the key cotton NRM researchers and their work. In this case study, Sean Freney, Dr Erin Peterson, Dr Susan Fuller outline their research into the impact of remnant vegetation on bat activity. 

The case study, conducted by AgEcon/CottonInfo's Jon Welsh and AgEcon's Janine Powell, was undertaken to consider the economic and environmental impact of installing microgrids to offset the energy use of surface water irrigation pumps and a small grain drying facility in the Fitzroy Valley of Qu

There are a range of ecosystem service benefits that flow from maintaining on-farm natural assets. Previous research has focused on the relationship of semi-natural vegetation providing individual ecosystem services, for example, biological control or pollination.

Read the results of a CRDC-supported study into the energy use of a QLD irrigator, including analysis on the farm's centre-pivot, river pump and grain-drying facilities, conducted by AgEcon/CottonInfo's Jon Welsh and AgEcon's Janine Powell. 

Cover cropping is the process of growing a crop during a fallow period, creating ground cover that helps increase water infiltration, slow evaporation, improve soil carbon and soil mineral nitrogen, and protect the top soil.
