Crop Rotations

In sub-tropics, sugarcane is grown in rotation with rabi crops as wheat, potato, gram, mustard, peas, rice, maize, sorghum, cotton. In Maharashtra, the common rotational crops are wheat, gram/sorghum and cotton. In Tropical states, rice is most common rotational crop.


Sugarcane germination and easily growth is slow so intercrop may be taken as crop is planted in wide space.

Autumn planted cane: Potato, Lahi, Mustard, Garlic, Onion, Flower, Lentil may be taken.

Spring planted cane- Green gram, Urd, Lobia, Onion, Lady’s finger.

Apply extra dose of fertilizer.

It gives extra income and control weeds at early stage.
