STUDIES ON THE EFFECT OF SETT SIZE, SEED RATE AND SETT TREATMENT ON YIELD AND QUALITY OF SUGARCANE (SACCHARUM OFFICINARUM L.)K.C. Ombase, D.S. Potdar, S.V. Nalawade , R.M. Dixit and S.M. Pawar
A field experiment was conducted for three consecutive years 2008-09 to 2010-11 to study the effect of sett size, seed rate and sett treatment on yield and quality of sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) at Central Sugarcane Research Station, Padegaon (M.S.). Planting of two bud setts (112.53 t ha-1) proved significantly superior for higher cane yield, CCS yield, net profit and B:C ratio. Normal seed rate of 60,000 buds/ha recorded significant higher cane and CCS yield. The seed treatment either with Carbendazin alone or with Carbendazin + Gibbrellic acid found non significant for cane and CCS yield and monitory return .
