On a positive note, the season is progressing well right across the growing region. However there is unfortunately an increasing number of reported incidents of spray drift onto cotton crops, which are at a very sensitive stage of growth. Cotton Australia urges growers/agronomists to complete the spray drift incident report located here: http://cottonaustralia.com.au/uploads/resources/SprayDriftIncidentForm2016.pdf Please continue to communicate with your neighbours and spray contractors to ensure they're aware that spraying Group I herbicides when conditions are not ideal is a damage threat to cotton crops across a wide area. Another point of note is bees. Please take care when recommending and applying insecticides that are toxic to bees. Putting your farm on BeeConnected http://beeconnected.org.au is a great way to alert apiarists where cotton is being grown. Also if you know the bee keepers in your area, communication with them in advance of particularly mirid sprays, is a good way to allow them to relocate or cover their hives to avoid a bee kill. Continued best wishes for the season and these aforementioned challenges!
