Adoption of practices to mitigate harvest losses – Phase 2
This project established under the Rural R&D For Profit Program undertook a value-chain approach to the issue of cane harvesting, one of the largest industry problems. Despite significant research into the impact of higher harvester pour rates and fan speeds on harvested cane yields, use of harvest best practice (HBP) has remained low. The project conducted extensive trial work by direct interaction with harvesting groups in commercial fields. The project demonstrated the production and revenue gains of HBP with no significant negative impact on cane quality or transport bulk densities.
