  • Sugarcane responses to irrigation and nitrogen in semiarid south Texas

    Water and N are often limiting factors for sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) production. This study was conducted to determine the effect of different levels of water availability on sugarcane growth, yield, and responses to N application, and also to evaluate the effectiveness of alternative N application methods. Three irrigation levels (20% below crop evapotranspiration [ETc], full ETc replacement, ...

  • Organic carbon and pesticide pollution in a tropical coastal lagoon-estuarine system in Northwest Mexico

    The Altata-Ensenada del Pabellon system (~360 km²) comprises three inland lagoons, a coastal lagoon, and a bay. Inland is an important irrigation district (~330,000 ha). Agricultural drains and two sugar cane mills wastewaters are discharged into the system. Particulate organic carbon in water varied from 0.5 to 6.1 mg C/l. Organic carbon mean concentration (mg C/g dw) in sediments was 22.6 in ...

  • Sugarcane postharvest residue management in a temperate climate

    Full retention of sugarcane (interspecific hybrids of Saccharum spp.) postharvest residue may reduce ratoon crop yields. The objective of this study was to determine the effects of different residue removal timings and methods on sugarcane yield. A two-factor (timing and method) experiment was conducted on both clay and silt loam soils in southeastern Louisiana. Removal timings consisted of the ...

  • Modelling of an EGSB treating sugarcane vinasse using first-order variable kinetics

    An expanded granular sludge bed (EGSB) anaerobic reactor treating sugar cane vinasse was modelled using a simple model with two steps (acidogenesis and methanogenesis), two populations, two substrates and completely mixed conditions. A first-order kinetic equation for both steps with time-variant kinetic coefficients was used. An observer system was used to estimate the evolution of kinetic ...

  • ANFIS approach to the working of a compost–heat extractor

    Composting is an organic sludge management option in which volatile solids are converted to carbon dioxide and water. As the sugar cane press mud undergoes aerobic composting, the bed heats–up to a temperature in the range of 50–70°C, releasing thermal energy and the heat liberated was extracted using a heat pipe. A neural network approach is applied to analyse the data obtained ...

  • Influence of marketing mix elements on the intention of sugarcane farmers in Thailand to use commercial tailor–made fertiliser

    Tailor–made fertiliser (TMF) is a new practice in Thailand that aims to achieve a more efficient use of a fertiliser on cultivated soil. This study attempts to determine farmers' attitudes toward a marketing mix of TMF and to investigate factors influencing the farmers' intention to use TMF in accordance with the marketing mix strategy. A survey was conducted among 387 sugar cane farmers who were ...

  • Peru Agribusiness Report Q1 2014

    Our outlook for Peru's agricultural sector remains positive. The livestock sector is very dynamic, and investment into the country's ethanol sector is boosting sugar production. Export crops, such as coffee and cocoa, are hampered by a lack of infrastructure and investment, but there is scope for strong growth in both, particularly as Peru is becoming increasingly recognised for organic and ...


  • Biofuel scenarios in a water perspective: The global blue and green water footprint of road transport in 2030

    Concerns over energy security and climate change stimulate developments towards renewable energy. Transport is expected to switch from fossil fuel use to the use of fuel mixtures with a larger fraction of biofuels, e.g. bio-ethanol and biodiesel. Growing biomass for biofuels requires water, a scarce resource. Existing scenarios on freshwater use usually consider changes in food and livestock ...

  • Influence of moisture on the activity of perionyx excavatus (perrier) and microbial–nutrient dynamics of pressmud vermicompost

    India’s agro-industrial sector contributes huge potential resource of plant nutrients in the form of wastes, which is either thrown away or buried or burnt causing environmental pollution. Pressmud (filter cake), a major-by product of sugarcane processing is produced 12 million tones annually. It is a spongy and dark brown material, contains sugar, fibre, cane wax, inorganic salts, soil particles ...

  • Why are certain herbicides banned?

    Herbicides, also known as weedkillers, are chemical substances used to control and kill unwanted plants (weeds), leaving the desired plants unharmed. While these products are very useful for farmers, they are not always safe. In fact, many herbicides that were in common use around the world a few years ago are slowly being banned. In this blog post, we will look at a few herbicides that are used ...
