Abstract:

Yellow leaf disease (YLD) is becoming a serious concern in sugarcane worldwide. The crop production and quality are going down due to the infection of this disease in sugarcane. An experiment was conducted to find out the effect of YLD on yield and quality of two early (Co 0238, CoS 03251) and two mid late (CoS 97261, Co 05011) sugarcane cultivars at SRI, Shahjahanpur during the year 2015-16. The results revealed remarkable reduction in qualitative and quantitative traits after infection of YLD. The average losses in quality and yield were found 2.40 per cent and 11.11 per cent, respectively. The content of macro nutrients (N, P, K) and micro nutrients (Zn, Fe, Cu, Mn) were also reduced in infected plants as compared to healthy plants. Maximum incidence (30 %) of YLD was observed on variety Co 05011 at Shahjahanpur location. It is suggested that commercial cultivation of sugarcane should be done using healthy seed material and breeding programme be initiative for developing YLD resistant clone of sugarcane. These approaches would undoubtedly check the losses occurring due to YLD and increase cane productivity as well as quality of sugarcane.
