Managing the risk of glyphosate resistance in Australian glyphosate- resistant cotton production systems.
The simulations showed that, when a combination of weed control options was employed in addition to glyphosate, resistance did not evolve over the 30 year period of the simulation, underlining the importance of maintaining an integrated system for weed management. Expand
Genetically modified cotton has no effect on arbuscular mycorrhizal colonisation of roots
The observed pattern of colonisation was virtually identical among both conventional and GM cultivars of cotton at each assessment, clearly indicating that colonisation by AM fungi were not affected by the expressed transgenic traits. Expand
Weed management practices in glyphosate-tolerant and conventional cotton fields in Australia
Investigation of how the adoption of glyphosate-tolerant cotton (Roundup Ready) had influenced herbicide use, weed management techniques, and whether changes to the weed spectrum could be identified found a conservative approach by growers adopting this technology and reflecting the narrow window of herbicide application.

Roadside surveys support predictions of negligible naturalisation potential for cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) in north-east Australia.
Summary A survey of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) volunteers was conducted along the 1400 km of a cottonseed transport route in north-east Australia to determine the extent of naturalisation fromExpand
Improving Environmental Loading Assessments of Cry Protein from GM Plants Based on Experimentation in Cotton~!2008-09-12~!2008-11-15~!2008-12-05~!
Assessment of environ- mental loading of proteins from GM plants would be improved with the use of field grown plants, whole plant assess- ments, increased knowledge on fate and persistence of GM proteins in the soil, and refinement of current ELISA method- ologies. Expand
Developing Integrated Weed Management Systems for Cotton
The Australian cotton industry is responding to increased pressure to reduce reliance on pesticides. An important part of this program is the examination of weed control and herbicide use patterns.Expand
Strychnine uptake by cereals and legumes grown in the glasshouse and field.
Potential plant uptake of strychnine is shown, but at the recommended rate of application under field conditions it is unlikely that stRYchnine concentrations in the crops studied will exceed the detection limits. Expand
