Cotton Australia is the peak grower body for Australia’s cotton growers.
It helps cotton growers to produce high yielding, high quality, sustainable and profitable crops and is funded by a voluntary grower levy ($1.50) on each bale of cotton produced, collected at the time of ginning.
These funds are used to:
- provide a united and powerful voice for the industry
- defend and stand up for grower’s rights
- support growers on-the-ground, and in times of crisis
- keep growers informed of the latest industry information and resources
- influence public policy at all levels of government
- help growers be more sustainable and profitable through myBMP
- push for better rural Research and Development funding
- promote positive messages and a positive image of the cotton industry
- protect the industry from biosecurity and stewardship threats
In short, Cotton Australia allows cotton growers to get on with the job they do best – growing the world’s best cotton crops.
