CCA is engaged to coordinate the collection of Helicoverpa material in cotton growing areas of Queensland and New South Wales. The collected material is then tested at the Monsanto/Bayer Research Centre in Toowoomba.
CCA engages eight members across seven regions to collect Helicoverpa material throughout the cotton growing season to support Bt and insecticide resistance monitoring.
We appreciate the time and dedication of our collectors to provide this valuable service to the industry.
For many years previously, CCA members also collected Helicoverpa material for a Cotton Research & Development Corporation project that also involved the NSW DPI and CSIRO.
