Basics

Cotton is everywhere you look. We sleep in it, dry ourselves with it, wrap our bodies in it - we even cook with it. Today’s modern cotton industry is an agricultural success story, with a rich history that started with the First Fleet. It’s sustainable, community minded, efficient, resilient, technologically advanced and a big employer of Australians.

Around 1,500 cotton families stretching from Emerald in the north of Queensland to Griffith in Southern NSW are proudly growing the highest yielding, finest quality cottons in the world.  And they’re doing it with less water, less chemicals and healthier soils than ever before.

No wonder cotton is the world’s favourite natural fibre.
