Strategies for cane production in marginal environments and under more environmental scrutiny* [Full subscriber]

Abstract Climate change is impacting on production conditions and sugarcane producers need to adapt to this challenging environment. Although some places on the globe will receive more rainfall, this paper addresses management strategies to mitigate the likelier scenario of reduced water availability, applied to marginal environments. The objective is to highlight key practices for the sustainable production of sugarcane under water-limiting conditions, with the focus being on soil-related aspects. The condition and properties of the soil have a significant effect on root development. The principle to be applied is to maximise root distribution in order to explore the available soil…
