Abstract:

Farmers participatory research was conducted at Viluppuram district in sugarcane crop to find out the feasibility of Sustainable Sugarcane Initiative (SSI) promotion in tank fed irrigated area under the World Bank funded TN-IAMWARM Project. The OFT’s were conducted in 10 farmers holdings at 5 villages with 3 treatments viz., conventional method, sett planting with Sub surface drip irrigation (SSDI) and Sustainable Sugarcane initiative (SSI) during 2011-14.Results revealed that more number of millable cane (NMC) of 1.26 lakhs under SSI, followed by 1.19 lakh in sett planting with SSDI. Lowest NMC of 1.06 in conventional method. The number of internodes and internode length also varied between the establishment methods and irrigation techniques. Individual cane weight was higher in SSI 1.55 kg, which was followed by 1.42 kg/cane in sett planting under SSDI. Higher cane yield of 159.6 t/ha in SSI which was followed by setts planting under SSDI (138.5).Cane yield increased to the tune of 40 % over conventional planting and 22 % over sett planting with SSDI .Quality parameters also showed a striking differences among the treatments. Enhanced water productivity of 9.73 and 10.36 was recorded under SSI and 8.05 and 8.38 was under sett planting with SSDI in main and ratoon crop. Lowest water productivity was in conventional planting with a tune of 5.32 & 5.04 kg/m3 in main and ratoon crop respectively. Higher net income of Rs. 2.12 lakhs/ha in main crop and Rs.2.52 lakhs/ha in ratoon crop was recorded in SSI, which was followed by sett planting under SSDI.
