Abstract: The method is used by sugar cane mills and may be used for cane payment. In addition to the polarimetric sucrose content, the method simultaneously determines the dissolved solids content and fibre content of the cane.
It is also suitable for determining these components in bagasse.
Precision of the method has not been determined.
