Information @ a Glance


  • Every hectare of sugarcane harvested leaves behind about 10 tonnes of dried leaves of sugarcane, called sugarcane trash.
  • 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.
