Brazil is the greatest world sugarcane producer, and the use of ethanol remark as a reference in terms of renewable energy user. In the last decade, the increasing demand for sugar and ethanol increase the crop expansion mainly in the west of São Paulo State and Midwest of Brazil, where irrigation is required (and sometimes essential) for the crop growth and production. Also, irrigated ...
Sugarcane is one of the most important Brazilian agricultural crops as source of food, fuel and feedstock. The physiological knowledge on water consumption can lead to increased productivity, besides providing sugarcane cultivation in areas where irrigation is essential. This project aims to investigate the effects of sugarcane trash blanket on water relations of Brazilian and Australia...
