Final Report - SRDC Project BS64S, Management Strategies for Drip Irrigation Systems in Sugarcane
Two drip irrigation trials were conducted on clay (krasnozem) and sandy loam (gley podzolic) soils to investigate the optimum positioning of drip irrigation tape for effective irrigation on contrasting soil types. Further ...
Final report - SRDC project BS103S : Evaluation of the chop-throw system for incorporation in a two-row harvester
This report outlines a three-year project to develop a two-row, chop-throw harvester in conjunction with a Bundaberg innovator and evaluate its performance under commercial conditions. The role of the BSES in this project ...
Optimisation of cultural practices for efficient mechanical harvesting (Final report SRDC Project BS20S)
Some progress has already been made in identifying field conditions and practices which lead to high dirt levels. These include lodged cane, wet field conditions and cutting with the harvester basecutter below ground ...
Final report SRDC project BS65S optimising cane harvester extractor performance
The three year project to optimise cane harvester extractor peformance was directed into three separate areas - evaluation of existing commercial or semi commercial cleaning system -development of an extractor hood design ...
Phytotoxic substances associated with the decomposition of sugarcane trash residues. (Final report SRDC Project BS31S)
Ratooning through trash blankets is generally effective with minor exceptions for certain varieties and in cold or waterlogged soils. Information was required to determine whether these effects are normal reactions of slow ...
