cotton yield

Catalogue: Broadacre Field Crops DAFF QLD
From then, production was maintained with variable rain grown plantings until 1954 when production ceased until the commencement of the contemporary industry as it is today... The contemporary Australian cotton industry commenced in about 1960 with the planting of irrigated crops in the Namoi Valley of New South Wales (NSW) and on the Darling Downs in Queensland... Irrigated and rain-grown (dryland) cotton are specialised crops that demand a higher level of management than other field crops, given the higher level of risk in growing the crop due to insect pressure, disease and climatic conditions during the growing season, which can affect yield and quality...

Using my long term (8 years) average cotton yields, and a calculated sorghum production from the same available moisture, cotton has returned $1815 per cropped hectare, versus sorghum at $1208 per cropped hectare, or a positive result in favour of cotton of $607 per hectare per year... Each farm zone is soil cored around May/ June each year and samples for soil moisture and nutrient availability are taken... Data is taken at the end of the summer crop phase (which is now the start of the winter crop/ fallow phase), and one year later for the same phase, which provides details of nutrient availability for the next crop...
