ABSTRACT

 

Field experiments were conducted with sugarcane crop in sandy loam and clay loam soil types to study the effect of post bio-methanated distillery effluent (PME) on soil properties and yield of sugarcane during 2004 - 2005. The PME was applied at different dilutions viz., 1:10T, 1:20T, 1:30T, 1:40T and 1:50T in four splits from 45th day after planting in 40 days interval. The PME applied along with irrigation water at different dilutions significantly increased the sugarcane yield over the control and the highest cane yield of 121 t ha
