Abstract:
Field experiment was conducted during spring seasons of 2019-20 and 2020-21 at the Research Farm of ICAR-Indian Institute of Sugarcane Research, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India. The experiment was laid out in randomized block design, comprised fifteen treatments replicated thrice. Higher number of tillers at 60 (71, 670 and 76,900/ ha) and 120 days after planting (1,87,300 and 1,89,700/ha) respectively during 2019-20 and 2020-21 was noticed due to sugarcane sole at 90 cm row spacing which was followed by sugarcane at 90 cm row spacing + okra (1:1). Similarly, higher leaf area index during both the years at 120, 180 and 240 DAP was obtained due to sugarcane sole at 90 cm row spacing which was followed by sugarcane sole at 120 cm row spacing and sugarcane sole at 150 cm row spacing. Significantly higher number of millable canes (1, 32500 and 1, 34,400/ ha) and cane yield (104.3 and 110.5 t/ha) during first and second year, respectively was also noticed due to sugarcane sole at 90 cm row spacing which was statistically similar to sugarcane at 90 cm row spacing + okra (1: 1). Pol percent juice did not varied significantly with row spacing and intercropping system. Though comparatively higher value was noticed due to the sugarcane sole at 90 cm row spacing was followed by sugarcane at 90 cm row spacing + sesame (1:1).
