Cotton, an officer of the East India Company with experience of irrigation, visited Tasmania for periods totalling three years. His influence was important in gaining acceptance of irrigation as an aid to cereal production and the livestock industry. Details are given of his Tasmanian work, which had particular significance there for its emphasis on water conservation.
