Poor clamp location or construction can lead to fungal rots and significant losses. Research puts these losses at 0.1% of total sugar volume per day on average and while they cannot be avoided entirely, good clamp design that considers ventilation and height suggests losses can be reduced by 60% to 0.039% per day.
