Correlation of Growth Traits and Yield of Sugarcane with Micronutrients
F.C. Oad , G.H. Jamro , A.A. Lakho and G.Q. Chandio

Abstract:
Experiments on the correlation coefficient of growth and cane yield traits of sugarcane with micro nutrients like: Zn (1.50, 3.00 and 4.50 kg ha-1), Cu (0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 kg ha-1), B (0.25, 0.50 and 0.75 kg ha-1) and Mn (1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 kg ha-1) and control where conducted. The results revealed that all micro nutrients showed positive correlation with tillers, tope weight, cane length, internode number and length, stem diameter, hieght, millable cane and cane yield, except copper for tillers, zinc for top weight, boron for top weight and manganese responded significant response for stem diameter and millable canes, respectively. It is suggested that micro nutrients are essential elements for obtaining satisfactory yields for sugarcane. Application of excess amount of these elements reduces the yield by reducing the crop parameter values, but, adequate quantities produced boosted yield. Thus, it is recommended that micro nutrients may be applied after various soil tests and proper levels should be chalked-out.
