Abstract
Early and late-maturing sugarcane cultivars were planted in autumn, spring and summer at sites in Uttar Pradesh. Percentage sucrose in juice of early-maturing cultivars was highest in the autumn-planted crops until March. There was a greater difference between autumn- and spring-planted crops than between spring- and summer-planted crops. It is suggested that early-maturing cultivars should be harvested early in the crushing season to obtain better sugar recovery and to free the cane field for other crops.
