In addition, the large amounts of cane trash
retained on the soil surface were found to increase [N.
The other waste, cane trash
constitutes 10 percent of the sugarcane crop.
Ng Kee Kwong KF, Deville J, Cavalot PC, Riviere V (1987) Value of cane trash
in nitrogen nutrition of sugarcane.
Several trial sites examining the effect of these systems have now been operating for ~10 years, making it possible to assess the effect of green cane trash management in combination with NT on TOC stocks.
This study examined the effect of NT and/or green cane trash management on TOC stocks at four sugarcane trial sites in Queensland, Australia, to assess the potential of these management practices to increase soil carbon sequestration in sugarcane soils over 0-0.
Agricultural resi-dues which can be used as fuel are: wheat straw, rice husk and straw, cane trash
and cotton sticks and plant residue.

retention on Herbert River soils.
Commercial scale ClearFuels-Rentech bio-refineries are anticipated to be designed with the flexibility to produce both renewable synthetic diesel and jet fuels from multiple clean biomass feedstocks including bark, sawdust, woodchips, sugarcane bagasse, cane trash
, corn stover and mixtures of clean biomass.
Within the Australian sugar industry, there has been a progressive move away from the burning of sugarcane before harvest to green cane trash
blanketing (GCTB), where crop residues after harvesting are left on the soil surface as a mulch.
Our biofuel refinery design integrates efficient production of cellulosic ethanol from bagasse and cane trash
with existing sugar mill and sugar fermentation facilities.
Soil samples were collected in 1995 from the long-term green cane trash
blanket trial which is being conducted on a Typic Tropaquept soil at the Tully Experiment Station, Queensland.
