CONSIDERATION OF THE SUGAR-CANE STUBBLE REPLACEMENT DECISION AT MHLUME, SWAZILAND

The decline in per hectare sugar-cane yields with increasing ratoons at Mhlume led to an investigation into various replant policies. Analysis of field history data from commercial fields identified distinctly different yield decline patterns for different land classes and the influence of fallowing and green manuring was also isolated. Net present value analyses of net benefit streams from yield models derived from these data have indicated the optimum stages (ratoon) at which replanting should occur.
