CRDC Annual Report 2016-17

November, 2017

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 2016-17, CRDC invested $24.1 million into 350 RD&E projects in collaboration with 122 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.

These investments achieved real impact for cotton growers, the industry and the wider community during 2016-17, as detailed within this report - both the full version, and the grower summary version.
