Each year the Australian cotton industry works hard to ensure myBMP delivers more value for its growers. In just two decades the cotton industry’s best management practice (BMP) program has completely changed the way other industries, community, and government view cotton production in Australia.
Now consisting of ten modules, the recently refreshed myBMP program does many things to help growers manage and grow their businesses. It assists growers to meet regulatory requirements, reduce risks, implement industry best practice, and provides a pathway for innovation by connecting growers with the latest science and research. More recently it has been helping cotton growers to access premium international markets.
More than 75 percent of cotton farms are now involved in myBMP, with over 100 new growers joining the program in the past 12 months.
