5. What is the difference between the sugar content of the sugar cane treated with the best enhancement method and the untreated sugar canes? 5. Is there any significant difference in the sugar content of sugar cane treated with the best enhanced fertilizer and the sugar cane treated with unenhanced fertilizer? Significance of the Study Reduction of wastes in the industries and in the environment is of primary concern nowadays. The purpose of this study is to help in utilizing some of these wastes by fertilizer production. Filter cake of Central Azucarera de don Pedro Inc. will be used in the study as its raw material. These filter cake will be used as the source of fertilizer, a natural material that will pose no harm in the environment. Since the desired product in the study will be made from the CADPI’s filter cake, the company’s organic waste will be reduced significantly. The company need not to dispose their filter cake to just some places. Nutrients of the soil will also be conserved because the nutrients in the filter cake will be introduced again to the soil. The study will also provide more information and will serve as a basis for future researches regarding fertilizer manufacturing. Null…show more content…
Scope and Delimitation The study focused on the effectiveness on the efficiency of sugar cane filter cake-derived fertilizer with the three different enhancement procedures in increasing the sugar content of sugar cane. Filter cake that were used for the utilization of fertilizer must be from Central Azucarera de Don Pedro Inc. Enhancing agents like orange rinds, banana peel, rice husk and were added to modify the fertilizer. Fertilizer content such as Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium was studied. The sugar content of the treated sugar cane was studied for a more detailed evaluation of the fertilizing capacity of the Enhanced Fertilizer accumulated from filter cake. The sugar content of the sugar cane was measured using ________ . Analysis was performed by the ______Lab. The contents and properties of the soil were not considered. Temperature and other natural phenomena were not evaluated. Other components of the fertilizer were not considered. The study however is limited to the evaluation of the sugar content of treated sugar cane. Conceptual Framework INPUT PROCESS
