Silverleaf Whitefly (SLW) is a major pest in cotton. It has the ability to contaminate cotton lint with honeydew, has a large host range, can rapidly reproduce and can develop resistance to many insecticides.

CottonInfo was formed in 2012, and 2018 marked the end of our first Strategic Plan. In this fact sheet, we discover the impact of CottonInfo during its first six years.

This fact sheet compares four different types of wilt - Fusarium wilt, Verticillium wilt, sudden wilt and reoccurring wilt - plus lightning strikes, so you can be aware of their various causes, symptoms and spread.

 

 

With the cotton industry expanding across Northern Australia, it is likely used cotton machinery and equipment may need to be moved across state and territory borders.

The HRMS is designed as a tool to manage the risk of herbicide resistance in irrigated and dryland farming systems incorporating herbicide tolerant (HT) cotton, to delay glyphosate resistance. The strategy has been developed in response to the escalating problem of glyphosate herbicide resistance

The use of pesticides selects for resistance in pest populations. The cotton industry Insecticide Resistance Management Strategy (IRMS) seeks to manage the risk of resistance in all major pests of cotton including aphids, mites, SLW and Helicoverpa, both in conventional and Bt cotton.
