Crop Consultants Australia coordinates the Cotton Market Audit each year on behalf of the cotton industry. Crop Consultants Australia members participate by providing agronomic data for each cotton season.
Options to participate in Cotton Market Audit
Crop Consultants Australia has guidelines in place for the supply and management of data. These guidelines outline to participating consultants how data is collected and managed to ensure the integrity of the data and protect the anonymity of consultants and their clients.
