GOMEZ JUAREZ, Israel A e SANCHEZ FERRER, Manuel E. Containers system, an option to reduce strange matter in the sugarcane mechanized elk. Rev Cie Téc Agr [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.1, pp. 63-69. ISSN 2071-0054.
It was designed and evaluated a system that avoids in the mechanized elk incorporate to the sugarcane (Saccharum spp) bundle such impurities as stones, earth and stubbles. The principle is that the cutter should place the sugarcane stem on a metallic structure so that, this is not in contact with the floor (about 20 cm.separated) and also make form to the bundle so that "it claws" on the elk machine can take it in a single action. To determine the system effectiveness, during 2007-2008 harvest, in the area of supply of sugarmills Central Motzorongo, two aspects, the cutter yield and carried strange matter percentage were evaluated. The subjected results to the variance analysis allow asserting that the system of containers was superior to the traditional one when reducing or to eliminate the earth and stones and with it to increase the economic benefit and of operation. It is recommended to continue the generalization to all the supply areas with similar conditions to that of the study.
