The sugarcane deterioration will be start in the field after harvesting, factory storage pile, or during factory milling processes, that it has become a subject of major concern in recent years. The present work aims at to study the application of different synthesized and commercial flocculants such as poly(acrylamide) (P.A.M), poly(acrylic acid) (P.A.A), and Magnafloc LT-27, Separan AP-30 on sugarcane variety Co-62175 for fresh and stale cane juice clarification. The result reveals that synthasized flocculant P.A.A gave better turbidity of juice compared to the commercial flocculants, and also commercial flocculant Separan AP-30 shows good settling time compared to all other flocculants. On the other hand if the time lag is more between harvest to crush Magnafloc LT-27 gave good results even then juice clarified after 48 hr. Generally if the sugarcane crushed after 24 hr definitely it consumes more flocculants and due to this manufacture of commercial sugar because expensive.
