Abstract:

A field experiment on single eye bud seedling planting technique was conducted on farmer’s field during 2013-14 at Vijayapura, Karnataka, India and during 2014-15 at Agriculture Research Station, Almel, University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad, Karnataka, India, in a randomized complete block design. Treatments comprised of four row spacing and two intra row spacing compared with national check (150 X 60 cm) and conventional method of planting (90 cm row spacing) under drip irrigation. Two years pooled data indicated that, single eye bud sugarcane seedling planted at 180 X 60 cm recorded significantly higher cane yield of 162 t ha-1 which was on par with planting at 180 X 90 cm (154 t ha-1) and national check of 150 X 60 cm (150 t ha-1). Conventional method of planting with three budded setts recorded significantly lower cane yield (102 t ha-1) compared to different planting geometry with single eye bud seedling planting technique. The yield attributes viz., number of millable cane per meter, number of inter nodes per cane, inter nodal length (cm), inter nodal girth (cm), single cane weight (kg) and quality parameters viz., commercial cane sugar (CCS %), CCS yield (t ha-1) and sucrose content (%) followed the similar trend. Further, the economic analysis of the system revealed higher monetary advantage in term of net returns [ 202880 ( $ 3121.23) ha-1] and benefit cost ratio (2.68) with single eye bud seedling planted at 180 X 60 cm which was on par with single eye bud seedling planted at 180 X 90 cm and 150 X 60 cm compared to conventional method of planting [ 92528 ($ 1423.50) ha-1] and 1.83 respectively). Besides, single eye bud seedling planting technique offers good scope in reducing water requirement for sugarcane cultivation. Water saving was to the extent of 35-55 per cent.
