Some base cutting parameters in sugarcane harvester: A review

Author(s):

Md. Tahsin Ashraf and Dr. VM Victor

Abstract:

India is the world's second-largest cane-growing country, after Brazil, with a 19.9% (5.16 million hectares) share in area during season 2018-19; sugarcane and sugar production were 400,157 million metric tonnes and 31.5 million metric tons, respectively. Sugarcane harvesting is a highly labour intensive operation, about 850–1000 man-hours per ha. are required for sugarcane harvesting with the traditional tools. The scarcity of labour is being felt all over the country. India needs to change the sugarcane harvesting methods from manual to mechanize. This study was conducted to determine the base cutting parameters, which play an important role in the development of sugarcane harvesters. The cutting energy is influenced by various base cutting parameters such as the physical and mechanical properties of the sugarcane stalk, cutting force, cutting speed, cutting velocity, blade angle, and blade type.
