Celebrating World Environment Day

On 5 June, we celebrate World Environmental Day.

The natural environment is a vital tool for sustainable cotton production, and in Australia, it’s a primary focus of the myBMP program.

During the past 30 years Australian cotton farmers have improved their cotton growing efficiencies. To grow a bale of cotton, Australian cotton farmers now use:

  • 52% less water
  • 97% less insecticides
  • 34% less land
