Regional adoption of alternative harvester configurations for sustainable harvesting efficiency : SRDC final report BSS270
The project aimed to improve harvester efficiency in a range of crops sizes and conditions by:
Implementing an integrated sugar system in NSW : final report NSC005
The New South Wales Sugar Milling Co-operative’s (NSWSMC) move to whole cane harvesting for cogeneration will increase in-field haulout traffic by 30% with the potential for yield decline due to increased soil compaction. ...
The effect of two different Toft basecutters on ratoon yield
The visual appearance of the cane stubble remaining after harvesting with the Toft angled underslung basecutter usually fitted to 7000 series harvesters is different to that remaining after harvesting with the horizontal ...
A participatory approach towards improving industry sector profits through improved harvesting efficiency : SRDC final report BSS227
Recent productivity gains through the introduction of high yielding varieties, green cane harvesting, improved drainage and irrigation have resulted in larger, mostly lodged crops with increased suckering. As a result, ...
The operation of the two-in-one harvesting attachment in a controlled traffic system : SRA Grower Group Innovation Project final report
The project has developed an automatic base cutter system to assist harvester operators utilising the Two in One harvesting attachment. The trial results have proven that the Two in One system offers: The potential to ...
Design and build a moving wall on side tipping cane transporters : SRA Grower Group Innovation Project final report
With the finalisation of the New South Wales Sugar Milling Cooperative’s Co-generation project, the transportation of whole of cane crop, with its 50% increase in bulk density, without losing the current efficiencies of ...
Overcoming barriers to controlled traffic adoption : SRDC Grower Group Innovation Project final report
At the commencement of this project, the available solutions for keeping harvesting traffic centred on wider row spacings while adequately filling cane bins are not effective. This was due to unsuitable harvester elevator ...
Improved harvesting efficiency in farming systems : SRDC Grower Group Innovation Project final report
The aim of the project was to achieve more efficient harvesting within our group. We monitored the harvesting effort for each paddock to determine the levels of paddock efficiency and increase awareness of the results. The ...
Achieving the world's best practice harvesting and transport costs for the NSW sugar industry
This project set out to develop innovative techniques for cane supply management within the NSW Sugar Milling Co-operative Ltd (NSWSMC), assess and promote harvester group optimisation within the NSW industry and to aim ...
A project scoping document to SRDC on harvesting RD&E
Mechanical harvesting of sugarcane has been a major success story for the Australian sugar industry. However, the Australian sugarcane industry has suffered a plateau in productivity (Wilson and Leslie 1997) and there is ...
