Systematic Review (SR) on the productivity of sugarcane cultivation in Brazil
MetadataShow full item record
The theme of sugarcane cultivation is analyzed in a large number of scientific research in several different areas of the knowledge. However, questions about productivity, especially in recent times, occupy a smaller portion of the research found. Thus, this paper aimed to perform a Systematic Review (SR) about sugarcane cultivation in Brazil, focusing on productivity studies. With scientific rigor, this method allowed to review, systematize and analyze the accumulated scientific literature on the subject of interest. Work results reveal a wide coverage of documents on the theme, promoting a strong scientific base for the development of a systematic review. The sugarcane productivity was the central theme and guided the entire process of papers selection. Among the approaches found on literature review stands out: mechanization of harvesting and planting; genetic improvement of sugarcane the trajectory of sugarcane cultivation in Brazil; the expansion of agricultural borders; and finally, the impact of flex-fuel technology and incentive for the production of ethanol. This work contributes not only to in-depth study of the theme, but also with the proposition of using SR methodology for studies related to Agricultural Sciences.
