CSD Industry Support Program
CSD strongly supports the dryland cotton industry. Once again, with assistance from Syngenta, we are offering the opportunity for dryland cotton growers to reduce financial risk by offering a dollar for dollar credit towards the following season’s seed, if the dryland cotton crop is unable to be picked (excluding crops which are destroyed through hail damage).
The program is available in selected varieties in designated areas - see map.
- “No pick” means the crop is destroyed (for any reason other than hail) after inspection by a CSD Extension and Development Agronomist.
- Credit is of the same value, purchased in 2021 for next year’s seed.
- ISP claims must be lodged by Friday, 18 March 2022.
- All prices must be at Regular Order price.
- Seed needs to be purchased with a Syngenta branded seed insecticide treatment.
- Needs to be registered by Tuesday 7th December 2021. For Northern Australia crops please refer point 9 in the T&C’s.
