Continge Contingency

10. JUSTIFICATIONS :

1.  A major programme for production and multiplication of quality seed ensuring their availability to the farmers shall be under-taken.

2.  Planting material produced through Tissue culture shall be popularised among farmers.on the same time low cost poly bag planting matarials shall also be popularised

3.  In sugarcane use of culture in the form of PSB, Azatobactor and Azosprillium are widely accepted  because the use of these cultures promote the fertility of soil and  availability of Nitrogen naturally.

4.   Skill of  farmers and Extension workers needs improvement through continuous training  and their visit to other areas where advance technology are being adopted.

5.  Sugarcane is a perennial  crop which is affected by so many diseases and pests  IPM is a major component which is to be included in the programme. Looking to its importance to maintain eco-balance and for economical control of pests and diseases, the cultivators are to be given incentives to use hand & power operated Plant Protection equipment, Plant protection chemicals and seed treating material.

6.  The sugarcane growing cultivators can be benefited economically by taking inter-crops, therefore inter-cropping is to be promoted.

7.    Besides the use of balanced fertilizers in soil it is also essential to use Micro-nutrients in standing crop as and when required to maintain soil and crop health.

8.   Pyrilla is main insect-pest of sugarcane crop. To control this insect-pest Apricania and Tricogamma is found most suitable.
