2012 Cotton Comparative Analysis Published
25 June 2013
It was a record year in terms of hectares planted, but the 2012 cotton crop is likely to be defined instead by static yields, a weaker price and widespread flooding causing extensive damage to crops and infrastructure, according to the authors of the recently published Australian Cotton Comparative Analysis report.
The analysis is conducted annually by Boyce Chartered Accountants, the largest regionally based accounting firm in Australia, in conjunction with the Cotton Research and Development Corporation (CRDC). The resulting publication is regarded as the industry benchmark for the economics of cotton growing in Australia.

Boyce will again field a team in the annual City2Surf Challenge to be held on Sunday 11 August. Our aim this year is to raise $25,000 to support the fantastic work of the Burns Support Foundation - it’s a big ask and we're hoping for your generous support to reach our target.
We are proud to support the Burns Support Foundation as our nominated charity in 2013 largely because it’s a very worthy cause that operates without any government assistance, but also because we have a very personal connection with the organisation.
