“We choose to grow cotton in rotation with wheat, barley, chickpeas, mungbeans and canola.

“[Cotton] works well in a rotation, but it does give us the best return per megalitre of water.

“It’s ridiculous that we’re getting blamed for everything, because a lot of the information out there’s based on lies, not on fact.

“You’re copping it left, right, and centre on the news and on social media – yeah, it’s very hard, very hard to manage.

“Take the time to open your mind and learn the facts.”
