Abstract:

The most important and dominating fact in pulling down sugar recovery is delayed harvesting and crushing of cane. The deterioration in cane weight and juice quality due to late harvest and delayed crushing are especially important in Andhra Pradesh where the price of cane is paid on weight basis. In this view the study was undertaken to assess the extent of loss in cane weight and quality of juice in various sugarcane clones with delayed harvest and delayed crushing during 2018-19 at Agricultural Research Station, Perumallapalle, Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. The change in cane weight and juice quality parameters viz., sucrose percent and commercial cane sugar (CCS) percent were recorded at each month of harvesting and staling period. The results revealed that the clones 2012 T 81, 2012 T 180, 2012 T 72, 2012 T 182 and 2012 T 78 were suitable for delayed harvesting. However, 2012 T 81 and 2012 T 182 are showed tolerance to post harvest deterioration when compared with other clones.
