Title : Electronic data acquisition system to evaluate cane haulage
Year of publication : 1999

Citation : Pyneeandee, D.; Jacquin, E.; Gukhool, J.; Electronic data acquisition system to evaluate cane haulage; 1999
Abstract : Transport represents a substantial proportion of the costs of cane production. Optimum use of prime movers and trailers is necessary to minimize transport costs. An electronic data acquisition system was used to compare two types of trailers and to monito

Title : The use of new communication strategies for the promotion of sugar cane varieties in Mauritius
Year of publication : 1999
Keywords : EXTENSION; COMMUNICATION; SUGARCANE; VARIETIES; INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY; SOFTWARE; SIRITELL; GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS; MSIRI STAFF; EXTN; MAURITIUS;
Citation : Payandi Pillay, G.; Travailleur, C.; Ferrť, P.; Gooljar, A.; The use of new communication strategies for the promotion of sugar cane varieties in Mauritius; 1999
Abstract : One method of increasing productivity while reducing production costs is through the development and adoption of higher yielding sugar cane varieties. The role of Extension in this sphere is paramount, as it has been shown that adoption rates vary with growers' profiles and their socio-economic characteristics. Apart from the conventional means of technology transfer, emphasis is also laid on the use of information technology (IT) and other modern techniques to provide relevant information to sugar cane growers. This poster paper highlights the development and use of these modern communication methods. SIRItell, a computerized information system, providing ready access to information on recommended sugar cane varieties, is discussed. The development of pictorial recommendations sheets, using GIS tools and their access through MSIRi web site on the Internet, is also mentioned.

Citation : Collendavelloo-Kallerhoff, J.; Dookun, A.; Autrey, L. J. C.; Diagnosis of sugarcane yellow leaf virus by RT-PCR; 1999
Abstract : Sugarcane yellow leaf syndrome has been associated with the presence of a luteovirus, termed sugar cane yellow leaf virus. In some varieties from Mauritius, symptoms are not consistently observed in all the leaves of a infected plant. The polymerase chain reaction was used to test for an eventual correlation between the presence of the virus in leaves from symptomatic and symptomatic plnts of different varieties. The presence of the virus in plants with and without symptoms was confirmed by RT-PCR. This test proved to be more reliable that the ELISA technique.

Title : Organic sugar production - the Mauritian experience
Year of publication : 1999

Citation : Deville, J.; Organic sugar production - the Mauritian experience; 1999
Abstract : Organic sugar productin started in Mauritius in 1992 after it was realised that a demand existed in Europe. Production followed the standards laid down by the Organic Farmers and Growers Ltd (UK). These have to be strictly adhered to if the produce is to be certified as being organic by a registered inspector. The use of organic fertilizers, because of their variable and heterogenous composition, may lead to over or under fertilization. Manual weeding was found to be expensive and inefective. on the processing side, juice clarification was a major problem as clarifying aids are not permitted. Sucrose recoveries were consistently low. Owing to these constraints, producers gradually lost interest in organic sugar and only one estate, out of the three originally, is till involved.
