Soil Health Management
Continuous cultivation of sugarcane has been identified as a major cause of long term yield decline in several sugar industries worldwide. Major factors contributing to the decline are the negative effects of traditional management practices on soil health. These practices include continual monoculture, excessive tillage, burning of the crop prior to harvest and uncontrolled trafficking in sugarcane fields. Applied research programmes have developed cropping systems which are aimed to provide an all-round approach to improving and maintaining soil health.
