CRDC’s role is to invest in RD&E on behalf of cotton growers and the government, with the outcomes boosting the productivity and profitability of our industry. RD&E, and its resulting innovations, are a key driving force behind the Australian cotton industry’s continued success.
In 2017-18, CRDC invested $25.1 million into 318 RD&E projects in collaboration with 118 research partners and growers who conducted on-farm trials, across five key program areas: farmers, industry, customers, people and performance.
The findings from these research projects continue to be extended through a range of methods, including the industry’s joint extension program CottonInfo. The adoption of best management practices is also encouraged via the industry program myBMP. CRDC is a founding partner of both programs.
