I. RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT (R&D):
1. SPECIFIC AREAS:
a) The varieties procured from various sugarcane Research Stations such as CO 8371, CO8014, CO 86032 8s CO 92061 are picking up in our area of operation. CO 8371 is beingdiscouraged as it is prone for pest attack 8s promoting CO 94012
The farmers are happy with performance of CO86032 and CO92061. The area under thesevarieties for commercial plantation is increasing substantially. It is intended to havesome area for trial / research
Sugarcane breeding Institute is supplying sugar cane seeds of a newly released canevariety CO-99004 (Damodar) to the extent of one quintal for multiplication, to find outsuitability to our area. It is said that this CO-99004 cane variety yield and qualityboth. This variety is under III stage of multiplication.
b) For control of pest like wooly aphids, malathian and release of natural enemies isencouraged from time to time in the pest affected sugarcane fields of farmers isadvocated.
Natural enemies like Dipha aphidovora and Micromus spices which feeds on white woolyaphids are collected from the fields and released in the affected fields of our area.
Creating the awareness among the farmers that CO 92061 & CO 86032 varieties whichhave shown tolerance for white wooly as compared to other existing varieties of sugarcaneand being insisted to farmers to take up cultivation of these varieties. Farmers areswitching over to improved sugarcane varieties.
c) In some areas the sugarcane crop was affected by hairy caterpillars. In order tocontrol this pest attack, the steps were taken in co-ordination with scientist ofuniversity of Agricultural Sciences, and Department of Agriculture. Pamphlets givingtechnical guidance to control the pest were distributed amongst the farmers of that area.
2. BENEFITS DERIVED:
a) The release of predators in the field to control the pest periodically has resultedin good yield and good quality of sugarcane to the factory for crushing. We are in regulartouch with Agricultural University Dharward, Central Pest Management Centre, Bangalore,Sugarcane breeding Institute Coimbatore & Department of Agriculture Government ofKarnataka on this matter.
c) Introduction of early - rich varieties has enabled the factory to receive goodquality can e and to maintain recovery throughout the crushing season.
d) Use of bio-fertilizer has helped in improving soil fertility and minimized thechemical fertilizer expenditure and also improved the texture and productivity.
e) Cane field staff and farmers training program is arranged to train the staff andfarmers in latest technology of sugarcane cultivation by the scientist from the Universityof Agricultural Sciences, Dharward and Department of Agriculture Government of Karnataka.
3. PLAN OF ACTION:
a) Heat treated (with AST Unit) sugarcane seeds of different varieties are Procuredfrom Research Stations are multiplied in experimental farms and on selected farmersfields, under seed nursery program. These seed materials will have good viability and aredisease free.
Introduction of early maturing sugar rich varieties as planned for sugar factory are asunder:
