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 ...
Optimising rejection of dirt by cane harvesters : SRDC final report BS26S
Project objectives were
Evaluation of the chop-throw system for incorporation in a two-row harvester : SRDC final report BS103S
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 ...
Optimising cane harvester extractor performance : SRDC final report BS65S
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 ...
Optimum time of harvest for high early sugar varieties : SRDC final report BS705
To assess the optimum time of harvest for high early ccs varieties, two experiments were conducted on the BSES Experiment Station at Bundaberg between 1993 and 1996. The first experiment included eight varieties selected ...
Beneficial use irrigation strategies with treated urban effluent : final report 972471
Objectives for research:1. To identify the demand for effluent water by comparing three levels of water application to assess economics of crop response to water, and the impact on balancing storage capacity;2. To select ...
Optimisation of cultural practices for efficient mechanical harvesting : SRDC final report 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 ...
Management strategies for drip irrigation systems in sugarcane : SRDC final report BS64S
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 ...
Analysis of field and factory options for efficient gathering and utilisation of trash from green cane harvesting : SRDC final report BS157S
The objectives of this project were: to determine field costs for harvest\transport of cane with varying levels of cleaning by the harvester; to determine similar costs for field to factory transport; to establish the total ...
