Organik Matter: It’s Role in Sustainable Farming of Sugarcane

ESTATE CROPS NEWS – Organik matter has an important role in determining soil health of sugarcane, i.e. soil capacity to support sugarcane to produce sustainable high yield. Soil organic matter influences soil physical, chemical, and biological properties, so that a consequence of declining soil organic matter is poorer soil fertility and lower yield.

Adaptation Test of Superior Varieties Sugarcane in Dryland Agroecological Conditions

Estate Crops News – Selection of new superior varieties adapted to dry agroecology was a wise move to support the development of sugarcane. In general, the land thus fulfilled its water from the rain. Therefore we need a strategy for optimizing the production of sugarcane by eliminating barriers. In fiscal year 2012 research activities was  […]
