CSD has had a long-standing relationship with CSIRO through the development and release of over one hundred different cotton varieties since the 1970s.

In 2007, CSD and CSIRO formed Cotton Breeding Australia (CBA), a joint venture to fund long-term cotton breeding research projects. Over $125 million has been equally invested toward the research and breeding of future cotton varieties for Australia.

Through the CSD Agency Network, CSD also partners with leading agricultural chemical suppliers to distribute our seed and information to growers.
