- Every hectare of sugarcane harvested
leaves behind about 10 tonnes of dried leaves of sugarcane, called
- Sugarcane trash should be recovered
from the fields through mechanic harvesting.
- The trash resists biodegradation, and
therefore cannot be used as directly as a fertilizer.
- When sugarcane trash is burnt, most
of the organic matter and nutrients in the trash are lost.
- A charring process is developed for
converting sugar-cane trash into high-value char.
- Sugarcane smut spores in trash bales
used for garden mulch or stock feed could spread smut to cane fields if
the trash comes in close contact with a commercial crop.
- Dried leaves of sugar cane, or
sugar-cane trash, resist biodegradation and cannot be used either as
cattle fodder or as a raw material for making compost.
- Due to the herbaceaous nature of
sugar cane trash, water leaching was proposed and investigated as a
means of reducing the slagging and fouling potential of the raw fuel.
- Considering the size of the global
sugarcane industry, it is apparent that there is an enormous potential
for the introduction of sugarcane trash for year-round electricity
generation at sugarcane mills.
- Trash mulching also plays an
important role in reducing borers infestation in sugarcane and has been
recommended as an alternative for chemical control of sugarcane shoot
borer, Chilo infuscatellus Snell.
- Sugarcane bagasse and sugarcane trash
are residues from sugar and alcohol production, an economic activity
that is well established in Brazil.
- Millions of tons of agro-waste from
rice, sugarcane, and groundnut plants (rice husks, sugarcane trash) in
India could produce up to 60,000 million units of bioenergy.
