Australian cotton researchers recognised

Two of Australia’s leading cotton researchers were recently recognised for their contributions to cotton. Dr Mike Bange of CSIRO was awarded the prestigious US Beltwide Award in January for his research in cotton physiology for more than 20 years – becoming the youngest recipient, and only the second Australian recipient. Meanwhile, the only other Australian recipient in the award’s history, Dr Greg Constable, also of CSIRO, was acknowledged with an award closer to home on Australia Day – becoming an Officer in the General Division of the Order of Australia (AO). Cotton Australia congratulates Dr Bange and Dr Constable on behalf of growers and the industry.
