BRISBANE - Cotton farmers could do more to help prevent worker exploitation in the global garment industry, according to a new report funded by Australia's Cotton Research and Development Corporation.

The study, by academics at the Queensland University of Technology and the University of Notre Dame Australia, says incidents such as the 2013 Rana Plaza Disaster have put pressure on brands to improve worker conditions in their supply chains.

But they say that limited attention has been given to what raw material suppliers, such as Australia's cotton farmers, could do to ensure their products aren’t associated with labour exploitation.
