Abstract:
The on farm testing (OFT) experiment was conducted at five different farmer field of Varaganadhi river basin in Theni district during Kharif 2017. The soil texture of the trail plot is clay loam. The trail plot received 981 mm of the rainfall. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design and replicated in thrice with following treatments. T1 - Sathanai India 309, T2 - Si 8 and T3 - CO 0212. There are two improved sugarcane varieties was used in this experiment which are high yielding varieties and highly suitable for Theni district. Each trail plot was conducted 0.25 acre. The trail plot comes under Varaganadhi river basin. Observations on growth, yield attributes and yield were recorded in randomly selected plants. Among the different varieties of sugarcane the higher number of productive tiller/plant, weed count / m2 (45 DAS), plant height (cm), number of internodes/cane, millable cane height (cm), number of millable cane/ha and yield (t/ha) were recorded in Si 8 followed by CO 0212. In economics, highest B: C ratio of 5.05 was recorded in Si 8 sugarcane variety. Based on the experimental results, Si 8 variety could be considered as better option for achieving higher productivity and profitability of Sugarcane in Block cotton soils of Varaghanadhi river basin area in Theni District.
