Systems for placing bagasse and molasses grass in taro cv. Chines

, : Systems for placing bagasse and molasses grass in taro cv. Chines. Horticultura Brasileira 8(1): 14-16

In field trials at Vicosa in 1983-84, Colocasia esculenta Chines was given 200 msuperscript 3 sugarcane bagasse or Melinis minutiflora plant residue/ha placed within the furrows or as a mulch within the crop rows or 400 msuperscript 3 bagasse or M. minutiflora half applied in the furrows and half as mulch within the crop rows. Av. root production was 22.7 t/ha with bagasse and 25.8 t with M. minutiflora application.
