Biological and economic potential of autumn-planted sugarcane in sole intercropping system under varying moisture regimes



Biological and economic potential of autumn-planted sugarcane in sole intercropping system under varying moisture regimes



Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences 68(7): 344-346



A study was conducted during 1991-92 to 1993-94 at Sambalpur, Orissa for biological and economic potential of autumn planted 'Co 6304' sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) with treatment combinations of 5 cropping systems (sugarcane sole, wheat (Triticum aestivum L. emend. Fiori and Paol.) sole, rapeseed (Brassica campestris L. var toria) sole, sugarcane + wheat, sugarcane + rapeseed) and 3 moisture regimes (0.8, 1.0, 1.2 IW:CPE ratio). Cane yield of the sole sugarcane was the maximum (107.25 tonnes/ha) which declined by 16.6 and 8.3% due to intercropping of wheat and rapeseed, respectively. Frequently irrigated plots at 1.2 IW:CPE ratio (50 mm CPE) recorded the maximum cane yield 106.03 tonnes/ha). Its yield reduced by 7.9 and 13.9% due to sub optimal moisture regime of 1.0 (60 mm CPE) and moderate moisture regime of 0.8 (75 mm CPE) IW:CPE ratio, respectively. The maximum net monetary return of Rs 22 493/ha was obtained from sugarcane + rapeseed system at 1.2 IW:CPE ratio with greater biological efficiency as indicated by maximum LER (1.90), benefit:cost ratio (1.57) and water-use efficiency (Rs 128/ha-cm). Sole sugarcane was at par with sugarcane + rapeseed system in respect of net monetary returns.
