Abstract:

The investigation entitled “Effects of type of planting materials and rooting media on yield and economics of suru sugarcane” during the season 2013-14 at Agronomy Farm, College of Agriculture, Dapoli. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design (FRBD) replicated thrice. Factor A comprised two types of planting materials viz., single bud setts (BS) and scooped bud chips (BC) and factor B compared of seven types of rooting media viz: B1- Soil alone (Sa), B2- Cocopeat alone (Ca), B3- Cocopeat 50% + Vermicompost 50 % by weight (CV), B4- B3 + PSB (CV+P), B5- B3 + Acetobacter (CV+Ac), B6- B3 + Trichoderma viride (CV+T), B7- B3 + PSB + Acetobacter + Trichoderma viride (CV+Al) and T15- An additional treatment of conventional in situ planting of three budded setts, in addition to combinations of these treatments. Result revealed that, the use of cocopeat + vermicompost + acetobacter [B5 (BS-CV+Ac)] and cocopeat + vermicompost + PSB [B4 (BS+CV+P)] as a rooting media recorded significantly higher cane yield (t/ha), green top weight (t/ha) and weight of trash (t/ha). Treatment B5 gave the significantly highest gross returns (Rs. 332684.2 ha-1), net returns (Rs. 124916.99 ha-1) and B: C ratio (1.60) as compared to all other treatments but remained at par with treatment B4.
