About this book

As the world sugar industry becomes increasingly competitive, the demands to produce sugar cane more intensively has become more and more pressing. This book appraises the current situation and sets the agenda for the future production of sugar cane in a cost effective and sustainable way. All the elements of successful intensive crop production are discussed. These include the biological, climatic, economic and social aspects which must be acknowledged and judiciously managed. Topics include new gene technologies and their potential value for sugar cane, along with the use of knowledge of crop physiology to bring about high levels of yield. Other issues include the economics of resource use, such as irrigation and there is also a consideration of the impact of sugar cane production on the surrounding environment. This book is appropriate reading for all research scientists working with sugar cane, such as plant breeders and physiologists. It is also useful for agronomists and sugar technologists working with this crop. The book is central to the needs of growers, millers and refiners of sugar based products. It is also relevant to economists, policy makers, regulatory authorities and commodity traders.
