Biological pretreatment of sugarcane trash for its conversion to fermentable sugars
Pretreatment of lignocellulosic biomasses, the first step in their conversion to utilizable molecules requires very high energy (steam and electricity), corrosion resistant high-pressure reactors andExpand
Hydrogen peroxide-scavenging enzymes impart tolerance to high temperature induced oxidative stress in sugarcane.
Seventy-one genotypes of sugarcane from diverse agro-climatic zones of India viz. peninsular, northwest, north-central and eastern zones, were screened for their tolerance to high temperature stressExpand
An assessment of postharvest sucrose losses in sugarcane billets under sub-tropical conditions.
In sub-tropical India, whole-stalk green cane is manually harvested but, in spite of this practice, sucrose losses after harvest are enormous. The existing laws and cane supply regulations lead toExpand
Sucrose loss and change in enzymes activities in harvested stored cane at high ambient temperature
A study undertaken to access the magnitude of post-harvest sucrose loss and its relationship with two enzymes viz. invertase and dextransucrase during late millings season showed appreciableExpand
Post-harvest deterioration of sugarcane and chemical methods to minimize sucrose losses
Sucrose losses after the harvest of sugarcane and (luring subsequent milling operation are one of the most serious problems in many sugar processing units in sub-tropical India. The field losses inExpand
Oxidative stress response and glutathione linked enzymes in relation to growth of sugarcane plants exposed to hexavalent chromium
Effect of hexavalent chromium (Cr6+) was seen onSaccharum species hybrid (cv. CoSe 92423) grown for 27 days in sand culture supplemented with 30,60 and 90 ppm of chromium. The inhibitory response ofExpand
Use of glutaraldehyde and benzalkonium chloride for minimizing post-harvest physio-chemical and microbial changes responsible for sucrose losses in sugar cane.
Sugar cane is sensitive to enormous sucrose losses induced by physio-chemical and microbial changes, the severity being increased during the time lag between harvest and crushing in the mills.Expand
Can sugarcane cope with increasing atmospheric CO2 concentration
Climate change is the one of the most emerging problem of today's world. It is the most potent threat to the existence of mankind. These sudden abrupt changes in the climate are affecting all theExpand
Sugarcane: Production management and agro-industrial imperatives
The book Sugar Cane: Production Management and Agro-industrial Imperatives edited by S.Solomon, S.S.Grewal, Yang-Rui Li, R.C.Magaray and G.P.Rao is an excellent publication for sugarcane and sugarExpand
Jaggery in Making Perfumes in Ancient India
Use of perfumes has been known since time immemorial. According to Shrimadbhagvat Purana (written during 4–6 CE) (www.jiva.org/dating of the bhagvat , 29.07.15), the art of making perfumed/scentedExpand
