Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted for two consecutive years (2014-15 to 2015-16) at Amroha district of Uttar Pradesh State, India. Different sugarcane planter and conservation tillage practices were tested for intensification and productivity of sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) after wheat harvest in Fauladpur research farm of Amroha district in NWP region of Uttar Pradesh. After the analysis of the different treatment of the sugarcane production with the consideration of two irrigation planting field conditions (pre and post- planting irrigation), two tillage [Conventional tillage (1ploughing + 2 harrowing) and Tillage operation by rotary tiller (2 rotavator)], four planters as Disc type sugarcane cutter planter, Slit type sugarcane cutter planter, Ridger sugarcane cutter planter, Furrower type sugarcane cutter planter and control as conventional practice. The maximum treatment effect of the effective field capacity and field efficiency of sugarcane in the Ridger sugarcane cutter planter was found during the years in comparison of the other planters. Maximum treatment effect of the field efficiency was found (58.63 and 58.275%) during both year 2014-15 and 2015-16 respectively for Ridger sugarcane cutter planter. Seed rate and depth of planting was minimum for post planting irrigation and Tillage operation by rotary tiller (2 rotavator) during both year 2014-15 and 2015-16. Effective field capacity and field efficiency was maximum for post planting irrigation and Tillage operation by rotary tiller (2 rotavator) during both year 2014-15 and 2015-16.
