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 ...
Farming systems for green cane trash blankets in cool wet conditions : SRDC final report BS63S
The three year project to evaluate different farming systems for green cane trash blanketing in cool wet conditions was directed at; evaluating the effect of different trash management practices on crop growth; evaluating ...
Biomass accumulation in sugarcane : final report 79/9028
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, ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
