Abstract

The aim of the current study was to evaluate the productivity of biomass and the bromatologics attributes of two sugar cane varieties, distance between planting,and time of harvest. The experiment was conducted in Presidente Prudente in the state of São Paulo (Brazil). A randomized complete block design, with split subsub-division, was used. In the plots were installed planting spacings of 1.0 and 1.5 m, in the sub-plots IAC 862480 and RB867515 varieties, and sub sub-plots toharvest three times (180, 270 and 360 days). Variety IAC862480 was higher compared to RB867515 tillering, the spacing of 1.5 m better than 1.0 m. Productivityand the percentage yield of dry matter was higher in variety RB867515 harvested 360 days after planting. Spacing of 1.0 m for variety RB867515 resulted in greater productivity compared to the other variety and spacings evaluated. Crude protein, ash, neutral detergent fiber, acid detergent fiber, total digestible nutrients and degrees Brix suffered interference of the date cutting sugarcane, with increased in the values​.

Keywords: Sccharum spp., animal feed, bromatology.
