What is the process of making sugar from sugarcane?
Cane sugar processing consists of the following steps: sugar cane is crushed, the juice is heated and filtered, then sent to a series of crystallisation steps to create crystals of raw sugar, followed by centrifugation to remove any remaining juice or syrup.
What is Sugarcane yield?
The average yield of cane stalk is 60–70 tonnes per hectare (24–28 long ton/acre; 27–31 short ton/acre) per year, but this figure can vary between 30 and 180 tonnes per hectare depending on knowledge and crop management approach used in sugarcane cultivation.
What are the products made from sugarcane?
Sugarcane is a rich source of food (sucrose, jaggery and syrups), fiber (cellulose), fodder (green top, bagasse, molasses) fuel and chemicals (bagasse molasses and alcohol). During the process of sugar production, the main by-products of cane sugar industry are bagasse, molasses and pressmud.
Is sugarcane a intermediate good?
The sugarcane used in the production of sugar is an intermediate good. intermediate goods are the items that are the final product of a process but are also used as an input in the process of producing various other goods. Thus, sugarcane used by a sugar mill for production of sugar is an intermediate good.
What is the yield of sugarcane per acre?
Theoretically, sugarcane yield is 474 tonnes per hectare per year. However, the average yield of Karnataka is hovering around 80-85 tonnes per hectare. Field demonstrations on sugarcane done in farmers’ fields have shown an improved yield. It has resulted in 100 tonne per acre cane yield.
Which crop gives highest sugarcane yield?
Ssugar is the major produce of sugarcane. The domestic demand of sugar is rotating around 22-23 million tonnes annually, where as the production of sugar in India during last 5 years is rotating around 24.3 to 26.3 Million ton.
What is the end product of sugarcane?
The four main byproducts of the sugarcane industry are cane tops, bagasse, filter muds and molasses (Figure 1)….ALTERNATIVE USES OF SUGARCANE AND ITS BYPRODUCTS IN AGROINDUSTRIES. by. J.M. Paturau.
