A review of opportunities to improve the design and performance of sugarcane harvesters
This review is a response to the recognition by the SRDC that the Australian sugarcane industry needs an informed basis from which to make decisions as to appropriate investments in harvesting sector research. There is a ...
Impact of chopper harvesting on the translation of field CCS to factory realised CCS : SRDC final report SD01007
This project was designed to investigate the impact of chopper harvesting on CCS at the mill relative to measured CCS levels of cane in the field, as part of the reason behind declining CCS. Background for the project ...
Developing a framework for advancing road transportation of sugarcane : SRDC final report SD98013
An objective of this project was to initiate a research program for the road transportation of sugarcane. Future research projects will be undertaken with the knowledge and cooperation of key parties and therefore have ...
Upgrading load and speed limits for cane transport vehicles : SRDC final project report SD01004
The primary objective of this project was to reduce costs associated with the haulout of cane by facilitating the continued development of haulout equipment, appropriate to the needs of the industry. This was achieved by:
Development of an Intelligent Tool to allow real-time evaluation of harvesting practices as part of a framework for improved harvester payment systems : final report 2016/951
(Sugar Research Australia Limited, 2019)
The project has resulted in the development of a cane loss indicator which can be a valuable tool to assist the harvester operator to optimise harvester performance as crop conditions change throughout the day. The system ...
Adoption of practices to mitigate harvest losses : Final report 2019/951
(Sugar Research Australia Limited, 2020)
Patane (et al. 2019) determined that Harvesting Best Practice (HBP) is predicated by two essential objectives. 1. Defining the critical point where harvesting losses can be minimised and delivered yields improved to ...
Commercialisation of lightweight elevator and advanced secondary cleaning system for sugarcane harvesters : Final report BSS251
The Australian sugar industry is facing the challenge of increasing extraneous matter (EM), depression of ccs, sugar quality issues, and increasing harvesting and transport costs per tonne of final product. In addition, ...
Facilitation of best practice to reduce extraneous matter and cane loss : SRDC Final report BSS189
Green cane harvesting and trash blanketing are important agronomic production techniques in the northern sugar producing areas. Cane losses are accepted to be higher with green cane harvesting and extraneous matter levels ...
