Soil constraints to productivity improvement
Yields of most crops are known to decrease if that crop is grown continuously without fallowing or rotation with other crop species. Sugarcane has been grown continuously on many fields in Queensland for 50-100 years. ...
The effect of soil physical properties on growth and yield of sugarcane
The literature reporting the effect of soil physical properties on sugarcane growth and yield has been reviewed and areas for further investigation are suggested. There is conflicting evidence in relation to the number ...
The effect of zinc deficiency as a factor limiting sugarcane growth (SRC Project BS14S - Final Report)
Results from this project confirm that substantial yield responses to zinc application can be expected in deficient soils in North Queensland. Deficiency is commonly associated with lime application. Three soil and two ...
Improving the yields of ratoon crops of sugarcane : SRDC final report BS7S (AMENDED)
The economics of sugarcane growing improve with the number of ratoon crops which can be grown from a single planting. In Australia, declining yields with increase in the number of ratoons limit a cycle to three to five ...
Development of a fungicide spray schedule to determine the effect of sugarcane rust (Puccinia melanocephala) on yield
This study reports on work carried out to develop a fungicide spray program which is suitable for yield loss assessment investigations. Aspects examined include the efficacy of various concentrations of chlorothalonil and ...
