Abstract:
The yield gap and factors influencing the yield gap in sugarcane cultivation with varied planting types were estimated in the current study. The source data gathered from 120 sugarcane farmers in Maharashtra Ahmednagar district. Five farmers from each of the four sugarcane planting types i.e adsali, pre-seasonal, Suru, and ratoon were chosen from three villages each in the tehsils of Karjat and Shrigonda. The yield observed at research station and demonstration plots are significantly higher than the actual yield. The sugarcane with ratoon planting type (18.26%) had the largest production gap (yield gap-II), followed by preseasonal (11.03%), adsali (10.59%) and suru (10.24%) Sugarcane. The planting materials, manure, fertilizer, and irrigation were determined to be most significant variable, controlling yield gap, according to the path analysis, which examined the direct the direct and indirect effect of inputs gap on the yield gap.
