Broad-scale suppression of cotton bollworm, Helicoverpa armigera (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), associated with Bt cotton crops in Northern New South Wales, Australia.
TLDR
Great toxicity of the two gene product, introduction of no cap on Bt cotton proportion, and an increase in natural enemy abundance are suggested as the most likely mechanisms responsible for the suppression observed.
Do the plant host origins of Helicoverpa (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) moth populations reflect the agricultural landscapes within which they are caught?
TLDR
It is suggested that C4 host plants are likely to be very important in offsetting the development of Bt resistance in these insects and such influences may operate across multiple regions within a single growing season.
Use of a managed stress environment in breeding cotton for a variable rainfall environment
Abstract Australian rainfed cotton is grown in regions with highly variable rainfall, with in-crop rainfall ranging from 100 mm to 800 mm. The CSIRO cotton breeding program conducts rainfed germplasm
EXPLORING THE POTENTIAL OF MULTIVARIATE ANALYSIS TO STUDY THE IMPACT OF COTTON LEAF CURL DISEASE ON YIELD TRAITS
TLDR
These tools can be potentially used to study the impact of disease on crop yield traits and for selection of lines/varieties either for future breeding program or farmer field.
Root growth of irrigated summer crops in cotton-based farming systems sown in Vertosols of northern New South Wales
TLDR
This study quantifies the effects of tillage methods and the summer crops cotton, maize and sorghum on root density in the non-sodic surface and subsurface soil and sodic subsoil of irrigated Vertosols in northern New South Wales.
