Improved strategies to process soft canes

In recent years a number of new varieties have come through the breeding program that are soft enough to cause problems when milling. This project will identify the best strategies to process these soft canes in the factory. Some soft cane varieties have such high sugar yield that there could be a high financial return to the industry if a cost-effective way to manage them in the factory can be found.
