Utilization of Filter Cake from Sugarcane Factory for Alternative Fertilizer and Reducing Soil Degradation after Sugarcane Cultivation
This research was to investigate a potential utilization from sugarcane factory such as filter cake that can be used material for alternative fertilizer and reducing soil degradation after sugarcane cultivation in Khon Kaen Province. The sugarcane fields at Amphoe Chum Phae, Khon Kaen Province was conducted. A randomized complete block experiment design was used with 10 fertilizer (F) / filter cake (FC kg/Rai) with 3 replications. Three levels of soil improvement were the main-plots comprising without soil amendment with soil amendment of 200 kg/rai fertilizer and with soil amendment of 100 kg/rai fertilizer and filter cake. Sub-subplots consisted of 8 levels of nutrients from filter cake application i.e. 200 400 600 800 1000 1200 1400 1600 kg/rai. The objective is to reduce soil degradation after sugarcane cultivation and study is to investigate the growth yield and Commercial Cane Sugar that can be used for sugarcane cultivation.
