Chemical Composition Indicators in Sugar Cane Based on the Re-Shooting Age, Plant Variety, and Plant Fraction
The general goal of this paper was to assess the behavior of chemical composition indicators (dry matter, ash, gross protein, phosphorous, and potassium) of two new sugar cane varieties, according to plant fraction and re-shooting age. Several plant fractions (whole, nodes, stem) were analyzed chemically at different re-shooting ages (six, eight, and eleven months). Forage variety My5514 was used as control. Multivariate analysis of variance was also made. The results demonstrated that the chemical composition indicators of ash, gross protein, phosphorous, and potassium in sugar cane, depended on the age of re-shooting, variety, and plant fraction. Dry matter depended on the re-shoot age and plant fraction.
