Sugarcane industry finer resolution of results

November 2022 release

Additional steps in DIN reductions are calculated using a linear interpolation equation. For example, if a site moves halfway to the next existing band, the estimated DIN load reduction will be half of the impact of that change.

Previous versions of P2R Projector (up to Nov 2022) estimated DIN savings by calculating the difference in DIN loss between the before band and the after band. As an example, the before band of five (original bands) might have a DIN loss of 10kg N/ha and the practice change moves the project to band four which might have a DIN loss of 6kg N/ha. Hence, a DIN saving of 4kg N/ha (10kg/ha – 6kg/ha).
