Scum and bagasse ash

Sugarcane scum is the residue of the organic matter in the sugarcane juice, which is created when the juice is purified after extraction. Whereas the bagasse ashes are a result of the combustion of its fibres, these two products are used to fertilise the ground in a natural way and to improve its organic content, as well as to correct any acidity.
