SASRI conducts research to assess the impact of mechanisation on sugarcane production efficiencies and sustainability. Mechanisation accounts for about 50% of the total cost of sugarcane production, even when cane is cut manually. With agricultural profit margins decreasing continuously, it is crucial that every effort is made to use farm machinery as efficiently as possible. Small savings on production costs can translate into large increases in net profit.
