Abstract:

Improving seed cane yield per unit area is among the major agronomic practices to improve the benefit of sugarcane production under a given environment. Hence, a field experiment was conducted at Omo-Kuraz-two sugar estate during 2018/19 cropping season to evaluate effect of inter-row spacing on yield and yield components of seed cane of sugarcane varieties. Treatments consisted of three cane varieties (B52-298, C86-12, and N14) and five inter-rowspacing (85cm, 100cm, 115cm, 130cm and 145cm) which were arranged in a split-plot design with three replications. Main plots and subplots received variety and inter-row spacing treatments, respectively. Three-budded cane setts were used for planting. Data on yield and yield components were measured at eight months after planting and analyzed using SAS 9.0 software. Maximum significant sett yield/ha (621,247) was recorded from planting of N14 variety at the narrowest inter-row spacing (85cm) followed by the value (580,431) obtained from planting of the same variety at 100cm inter-row spacing. Statistically similar and higher values of sett yields /ha were also recorded due to planting of B52-298 variety at 100cm (546,671) and at 85cm (550,822) and C86/12 variety at 85cm (537,473). It can be concluded that planting the tested varieties at the narrowest (85cm) inter row spacing would enable sugarcane growers to maximum sett yield/ha in the study area and other similar environments.
