The 5th biennial Australian Cotton Research Conference ‘Australian cotton science – continuing to lead’ will be held from Tuesday 5th to Thursday 7th September 2023 at the Empire Theatre’s Armitage Centre in Toowoomba’s CBD.

The research conference serves as a platform for cotton researchers to present and discuss concepts, key issues and the latest findings in research relevant to the Australian cotton industry, and cotton research community. It also encourages networking and collaborations and installs a sense of enthusiasm for our research. Presentations ranged across the themes of Plant, Paddock, People, Tech and Next Gen.
