Biomass accumulation in sugarcane (NERDD&D Project 79/9028 - Final)
Growth analysis experiments were conducted at Ayr and Bundaberg from 1979 to 1982 to study biomass accumulation in plant and ratoon crops of sugarcane. Crops were planted and ratooned in March, June, September and December, ...
Final report SRDC Project CLW009 Improving yield and ccs in sugarcane through the application of silicon based amendments
Under high leaching environments common to the wet tropics, soils undergo significant weathering, which, when combined with accelerated chemical and physical degradation due to soil perturbation and crop removal, results ...
An investigation of factors affecting ash in first expressed juice in the Rocky Point mill area.
Because of a deep concern at the level of ash in Rocky Point sugars and the lack of information on inorganic composition of juices entering the factory the management of W H Heck and Sons requested BSES to undertake an ...
Ratooning and ratoon management in overseas cane-sugar industries
Travel was undertaken to Florida, Louisiana, Brazil and Argentina in March-April 1994 and to southern Africa in October 1994. I assessed the environments and management of production systems in relation to productivity ...
Final report - SRDC project BSS270 - regional adoption of alternative harvester configurations for sustainable harvesting efficiency
The project aimed to improve harvester efficiency in a range of crops sizes and conditions by:
Final Report SRDC Project BS98S Factors Affecting the Residual Value of Lime
Project was initiated to determine the relative significance of soil acidity and soil calcium status for predicting response of sugarcane to lime in southern Queensland, where recommendations developed for tropical soils ...
Sustaining un-burnt production systems in cool wet environments : SRDC final report BSS168
This project was initiated because the Green Cane Trash Blanket (GCTB) system had been rapidly adopted within tropical districts of the Queensland sugar industry between 1984 and 1990, yet there was minimal adoption in the ...
Consequences of future management options for the Bremerhaven drainage system.(A report to the Woongoolba Flood Mitigation Advisory Committee).
The following questions were referred to BSES by the Woongoolba Flood Mitigation Advisory Committee: (1) The possible short and long-term effect on all classes of land of lowering the watertable in the Bremerhaven System. ...
The inheritance of ash in juice from sugar cane
Ash per cent juice data were obtained for varieties within 97 crosses in original seedlings in 1979 and for varieties within 86 crosses from three factorial polycrosses in 1981, on the Bundaberg Sugar Experiment Station. ...
Development of criteria for draining shallow watertables in the Isis irrigation areaFinal report SRDC Project BS12S
This project was proposed to the Sugar Research Council because qualitative data suggested a significant problem with waterlogging and salinity in hydromorphic sedimentary soils in the Bundaberg to Maryborough region. ...
