Nutrition : Liming under minimum or reduced tillage conditions

Text
South African Sugarcane: Research Institute
Source: 
Many acid soils of the hinterland and Natal Midlands on which cane is grown are situated on slopes in excess of 20%, and often have toxic levels of aluminium thus requiring lime. Under these conditions, minimum tillage practices are required to reduce soil loss and water runoff. However, the incorporation of lime under these conditions is extremely difficult.

Identification and Management of the Soils of the South African Sugar Industry

Text
South African Sugar Association Experiment Station
Source: 
Knowing the soils that occur on a sugarcane farm and understanding how and why they differ will assist growers in deciding how to manage the crop more effectively under different soil bioclimatic conditions and help to increase farm productivity and profitability in harmony with environmental issues. Cane grows well on good soils with relatively little management, but greater knowledge is required of the many poor soils in the sugar industry if they are to be conserved and managed in the best way possible.

Compaction

Text
South African Sugarcane Research Institute - SASRI
Source: 
With the increased use of heavy mechanical equipment, compaction has become an important factor in sugarcane production in South Africa. Infield haulage vehicles and, to a lesser extent, tillage implements, re-orientate and compress soil particles so that pores are reduced in size and number, and bulk density increases.
