Turning to cotton I BELLATA DRYLAND

Making the shift from mungbeans and sorghum to cotton wasn’t an easy choice, but it has been a saving grace in dry times.

As cotton harvest draws to a close at “Springfield”, Bellata, Craig and Merrillee Tomlinson together with McGregor Gourlay Agronomist Brooke Cutler, talk with The Land on the second season of growing dryland cotton in Bellata.

With a total of 128mm of in-crop rain, the crop has yielded 2.3 bales to the hectare, and McGregor Gourlay agronomist, Brooke Cutler, Moree, said the crop performed well considering the difficult season.

For the full story, read on with The Land below.
