The commercially grown Indian cane variety has sucrose content around 12-14% at peak maturity stage. Due to pre and post milling losses average sugar recovery remain in the range of 9.5-10.0%. This is a serious situation, which affect the overall performance and profitability of sugar industry. Therefore, regular use of an effective broad-spectrum chemical is important in improving sugar recovery at mill level. In the view of above facts, the investigation has been done with application of thiocarbamate based chemicals. The comparative activity of thiocarbamate-based chemicals was tested against invertase enzyme and sucrose contain in sugar cane juice. Two different commercial chemicals (1) SUGARBAG PLUSTM and (2) KILLBACT TM were applied @ 5 ppm, @10 ppm and @ 15 ppm with control. SUGARBAG PLUSTM @ 10 ppm and KILLBACT TM @ 15 ppm. Dextran, sucrose and reducing sugar were analyzed periodically with thiocarbamate chemicals treatments, and data were analyzed with analysis of variance. SUGARBAG PLUSTM @ 15 ppm was found best treatment because lowest dextran content was observed in this study.
