Historical performance data

As you can see from the chart below, the overall trend for average yields of dryland cotton in Australia has increased since the late 1980s. Variations in climatic conditions obviously affect each year’s yield and explain, at least in part, the occasional swings from one year to the next.

Due to the nature of dryland farming, weather conditions have a significant impact on yields. This means that there is considerable fluctuation in results, however it is clear that there has been a general trend of increasing yields.
