Sugarcane is a perishable commodity and must be processed into sugar quickly after it is harvested. Post harvest sucrose losses have been reported from many cane producing countries and linked with low sugar recovery and several problems during sugar processing. Bio deterioration is associated with the inordinate delays between harvest to milling of sugarcane and aggravated by many intrinsic and extrinsic factors causing enormous depreciation in cane tonnage as well as sugar recovery. Besides… Expand

Microorganisms affecting Post-Harvest Sucrose Losses in Sugarcane
TLDR
The major losses of sucrose after chemical loss in post-harvest sugarcane are of from microorganisms, the most nutritive source for growth and proliferation of microorganisms. Expand
Minimization of post-harvest sucrose losses in drought affected sugarcane using chemical formulation
TLDR
The use of this chemical formulation proves to be an effective one over post-harvest sucrose losses, particularly in drought grown canes. Expand
Effect of Delayed Harvesting and Crushing on Yield and Juice Quality of Promising Sugarcane Clones
TLDR
Sugarcane is the perishable commodity and must be processed into sugar quickly after it is harvested and nearly 20-30 % of total sucrose synthesized by sugarcane plant is lost during various stages of raw material handling and sugar mill processing. Expand
IMPACT OF DELAYED CRUSH ON POST-HARVEST DETERIORATION OF PROMISING EARLY MATURING SUGARCANE CLONES
TLDR
The results of the study indicated that the clones 2006T36 and 2006T3 recorded highest sucrose% and lowest reducing sugars respectively and were found to posses tolerance to post harvest deterioration, indicating the deterioration in quality. Expand
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
Impact of storage temperature and duration on sucrose catabolism in harvested sugarcane stalks
Sucrose loss after harvest is one of the serious problems for sugar factories especially when the time lag between harvesting to milling of sugarcane is extended during a period of high ambientExpand
Comparative analysis of sugarcane genotypes for post-harvest deterioration under natural conditions
TLDR
Investigating the post-harvest differences among three sugarcane genotypes and one check variety subjected to staling for a period of seven days found these clones can be optimal candidates for cultivation in areas distant from the vicinity of sugar mills. Expand
Inhibition of post harvest modulated product formation for stabilizing sucrose contents in sugarcane during stay in field
The post-harvest stay of sugarcane in the field for 8 days led to formation of abnormal levels of reducing sugars, phenols and dextran due to post harvest modulated enhanced titrable acidities andExpand
Post harvest quality deterioration in sugarcane under different environmental conditions
Post harvest changes in the juice quality parameters in relation to storage time were investigated in three sugarcane genotypes varying in maturity behaviour viz.CoJ83 (early), CoJ88 (mid) andExpand
