Australia's cotton production halved as drought and low to no water allocation takes its toll

Australia's cotton production halved as drought and low to no water allocation takes its toll

Australia's cotton production has been halved this season with drought and low-to-no water allocation for most growers taking a toll on crops.

Key points:

  • Australia's cotton crop is expected to be 2.1 million bales — about half the previous season's yield
  • Cotton Australia's chief executive says the national crop will still generate around $1.5 billion
  • He said it will not affect the global market, nor will it increase prices

While cotton picking and ginning was still underway throughout New South Wales and Queensland, Cotton Australia chief executive Adam Kay forecast the 2018/19 national crop would be around 2.1 million bales. 

"It will still generate about $1.5 billion dollars worth of export income, but production is less than half of the previous season and we expect next season it will halve again," Mr Kay said. 

"It's been a tough year, and there was this idea that cotton was somehow not impacted by drought — it's not right, the crop size halved, and it's been a very difficult year."

Mr Kay said water availability had driven yields down, which ranged from seven to 14 bales a hectare for irrigated cotton crops.

'Myley's law': parents of six-year-old quad bike victim want change

'Myley's law': parents of six-year-old quad bike victim want change

Sydney Morning Herald

Josh Maxwell wants it to be known as "Myley's law": a series of coronial recommendations that, if implemented, could prevent tragedies similar to the one which took the life of his six-year-old daughter.

Myley Maxwell was one of two young passengers on a quad bike being driven by a 13-year-old girl on a property near Narrabri, in the state's west, when it collided with a tree.

She succumbed to head injuries soon after.

"It’s something that we, the family have got to deal with for the rest of our lives. But if we can make change to prevent other children being put in this position, we’ve done our job as parents," Mr Maxwell said outside the NSW Coroner's Court in Lidcombe on Thursday morning.

The grieving North West NSW father's comments came after Deputy State Coroner Elizabeth Ryan handed down her findings following in inquest into Myley's death, among them that adults face criminal prosecution for allowing children under 16 to ride adult-sized quad bikes.

She also recommended the NSW Attorney-General consider introducing legislation making it an offence for adults to allow children to ride any quad bike without a helmet, and legislation making it easier for police to be able to enter properties where they suspected an offence had occurred.
