Final report - SRDC project BS145S : Improving sett/soil contact to enhance sugarcane establishment
|Abstract||This project had three objectives that were achieved in the following order: quantify the crop establishment practices of canegrowers within the major regions of Queensland and New South Wales; quantify the improvement in crop establishment achieved through the use of selected presswheel types and soil firming forces on the most common soil types. Provide machinery manufacturers and growers with recommendations on use of presswheels; and investigate the suitability of planting aids, such as finger harrows and in-furrow presswheels, for use on soils that exhibit surface crusting, cloddiness, etc.|
