Application of fertilisers to meet crop demand is only a part of developing a crop nutrition plan... Most of the nutrients taken up by cotton from the soil are derived from the decomposition of previous crop residues, soil microorganisms and soil organic matter... Salinity is measured by testing the soil solutions electrical conductivity (CEC)...

Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) principal entomologist Dr Melina Miles says yield and oil losses are linked to the level and timing of defoliation during the crop's development... Dr Miles says 2012 trials showed that sunflower yields declined up to 10 per cent where loopers had defoliated more than 75 per cent of the crop ( Figure 1 )...
