Press mud, also known as press cake, is the residual output after the filtration of the juice. For every 100 tons of sugarcane crushed about 3 tons of press mud cake is left behind as by-product. Press mud contains sizable quantity of micronutrients and macronutrients besides 20-25% of organic carbon. It prevents soil erosion, crusting and cracking, adjusts soil pH, improves drainage and promotes normal bacterial and microbial growth in the soil. It is used as both soil re-clamant as well as soil conditioner. Press mud is used as manure by SUGARCANE farmers. The company promote farmers to use bio-fertilizers as an alternate to chemical fertilizers to retain fertility of the soil.
