Developing a framework for advancing road transportation of sugarcane : SRDC final report SD98013
MetadataShow full item record
An objective of this project was to initiate a research program for the road transportation of sugarcane. Future research projects will be undertaken with the knowledge and cooperation of key parties and therefore have realistic and achievable goals. This project has encouraged communication between road regulators, manufacturers of haulout equipment, suppliers of tyres and suspension systems, users of haulout equipment, researchers and cane growers and thus created a cooperative environment for future research in this area. In addition to the initially specified objectives, this project has addressed the current issue of legislation not adequately covering the newer types of haulouts and the non-conformity of many haulouts to current regulations.
