Welcome to Sugar Research Australia's eLibrary
This is SRA's eLibrary, a web site that provides online full-text access to a growing collection of research reports and electronic publications authored by SRA researchers and staff or funded by SRA.
Work deposited here is freely accessible to the world via the web. Access is restricted only in unavoidable instances, for example where copyright restrictions prevail.
Shown below are the main Communities (themes) within this eLibrary. Content within each Community is organised into 'collections' that broadly classifies the work within the eight key focus areas that SRA currently invests in. Click on a name to browse its content, use the search capability above or use the faceted browsing under the 'DISCOVER' panel to the right.

(Sugar Research Australia, 2017)Automated furrow irrigation systems have been successfully installed and operated on 160 ha of furrow irrigation, on three farms located across the Burdekin sugarcane growing region. The once labour intensive manual ...
Assessing the real nitrogen benefits to subtropical cane from soybean break crops: final report 2016/404 (Sugar Research Australia, 2018)There is concern among subtropical cane farmers that much of the N in the residues of summer soybean crops is lost over the winter fallow period prior to cane planting. Nitrogen fixed in 10 soybean paddocks over summer ...
Investigation of lignin biosynthesis in sugarcane for improved lignocellulosic ethanol production: final report 2010/068 (Sugar Research Australia, 2015)Second generation bioethanol is a renewable energy resource produced from lignocellulosic biomass with the potential to reduce reliance on oil-based energy. Sugarcane bagasse is an abundant source of lignocellulosic material ...
(Sugar Research Australia, 2015)In sugarcane, flowering is essential to breeding but is not a pre-requisite for commercial production. Consequently, our knowledge of the processes that control flowering lags behind other crops where the seed is the ...
Impact of low pressure vapour on pan stage productivity: Appendix 6 for Develop a blueprint for the introduction of new processing technologies for Australian factories: final report 2015/043 (Sugar Research Australia, 2018)Australian pan stages predominantly use large unstirred batch pans which make it difficult to reduce the process steam consumption of the factory to below 38 to 40% on cane, as these pans typically require process steam ...
