Brief Description of Technology, Justification Including Innovation, if any, Implementation and Support (not more than 150 words):
CoP-2061 variety of sugarcane having high cane yield, better juice quality, more ratooning potential and resistance to insect pests and diseases was used in field of Sri Alok Kumar Singh. Paired row plantation of Sugarcane through trench method at a distance of 120 cm was adopted by him for better interception of light and also to maintain optimum plant population. Paired row sowing of potato variety K Pokhraj with early bulking character was done as an intercrop to increase productivity aswell as the profitability. Sugarcane seedling production through single bud method was also adopted to maintain the optimum plant population in main crop as well as in ratoon crop through gap filling. Sugarcane seed treatment by carbendazim @0.1%integrated with chlorpyriphos @0.3% was practiced by Sri Alok Kumar Singh.
