For sugarcane, 150-180 kg nitrogen, 60 kg phosphorus, 40 kg potash, 25 kg zinc sulfate and 20 kg ferrous. Use sulfate per hectare. By applying all these fertilizers at the time of sowing, the fertilizer capacity of the soil will be good and sugarcane yield will also be good.

weed control:-

               Weeds can be controlled by making at least three hives at 25-30 days after sowing sugarcane. Some chemicals are also used to control weed. Immediately after sowing sugarcane, spray 2 kg of active substance of Etrazine in 1000 liters of water and spray it per hectare.

Sugarcane harvesting:-

To harvest sugarcane, first measure with a hand refractometer. The harvesting of sugarcane should start as soon as the point of hand refractometer (manual rotation measured) reaches 18. Sugarcane ripening can also be detected by the sweetness of sugarcane if the device is not there. When the sugarcane is ripe, its harvesting should be started.

Diseases and prevention in diseases:-

There are many types of diseases in sugarcane, some of which are as follows –

Red rot – Coletatraicum falcatum
