        The Namoi River is regulated by Keepit and Split Rock Dams that enable management of water supply, which is used predominantly for irrigation. Additionally, groundwater within the valley alluvium is an important resource for irrigators, landholders, industry, and town water supply. During the early 16th century to the early 18th century, Indian cotton production increased, in terms of both raw cotton and cotton textiles. The Mughals introduced agrarian reforms such as a new revenue system that was biased in favour of higher value cash crops such as cotton and indigo, providing state incentives to grow cash crops, in addition to rising market demand.

      The Namoi River system has been shown to contribute the largest loads of salt, suspended solids and nutrients of the northern rivers flowing to the Barwon-Darling system (Nancarrow ). Given the relatively large pollutant loads discharged from the Namoi to the Barwon-Darling, catchment and river management plans for the Namoi need to. Cotton is grown in more than Australian communities. Major cotton production areas include the Central Highlands, Darling Downs, Border Rivers, St George, Mungindi and Dirranbandi regions of Queensland, and the Gwydir, Namoi, Macquarie, Murrumbidgee, Murray and .

        The Namoi valley in northern New South Wales is part of the Murray-Darling drainage system. The township of Edgeroi is in the central part (Fig. 1) approximately 25 km north of Narrabri. The area is arid to semi-arid. The summer months of December and January provide most of the rainfall, with a second peak around June-July. Visit Narrabri NSW - it is set in the heart of the rich Namoi Valley, in North West NSW, Australia. Narrabri NSW is home to 7, residents who enjoy good shopping, good sporting facilities and a very good way of life. Narrabri is situated kms from Moree in the north and kms from Coonabarabran in the south on the Newell Highway.

Greenhouse emissions were determined for the life cycle from “cradle-to-gate ” of different cotton and corn production systems in the Namoi Valley, Australia. The objective of this study was to determine if OCPs were present to a depth of m in the soil fraction of Vertisols under irrigated cotton farming systems in the lower Namoi Valley.

The Namoi River, a major perennial river that is part of the Barwon catchment of the Murray–Darling basin, is located in the Northern Tablelands and North West Slopes districts of New South Wales, Australia. The Namoi River rises on the western slopes of the Moonbi Range and Great Dividing Range, near Niangala, at the convergence of the Macdonald River and Boundary Creek, and flows.

However, high adoption rates of GT cotton have led to overreliance on glyphosate in weed management and have decreased the use of other herbicide options and non-chemical weed-management strategies.
