The objective of this study was to examine the impa ct on Eldana saccharina infestation of trashing and various levels of nutrient supply. Dat a originated from the long-term BT1 trial and included third leaf nutrient analyses, and E. saccharina field surveys that recorded damaged cane internodes. The treatments in BT1 incl uded various combinations of trashing, burning and fertilising, with the green l aves (tops) after harvest either spread or removed for the burnt treatments only.
