Popularizing of Sugarcane Based Intercropping Systems in Non Millzone

M.A.K. Al Azad and M.J. Alam    

Abstract: A field experiment was conducted to study the popularity of different intercrops with sugarcane at Nakla thana under Sherpur district of Bangladesh during cropping year 2000-2001. Five intercrops with sugarcane combination such as potato (Solanum tuberosum), onion (Allium cepa), coriander (Coriandrum sativum), mustard (Brassica campestris) and garlic(Allium sativum) were studied against sole sugarcane crop. In respect of agronomic performances, sugarcane with potato, sugarcane with onion and sugarcane with coriander were suitable though they produce lower cane yield than sole cane. In respect of economic profitability sugarcane with potato combination was the most profitable and sugarcane with onion and sugarcane with coriander combination were 2nd and 3rd profitable combinations, respectively. In respect of adjusted yield sugarcane with potato was the best combination and sugarcane with onion was the 2nd combination than the sole cane yield. Sugarcane with mustard and sugarcane with garlic combination was found to be inferior in respect of agronomic yield, economic profitability and adjusted cane yield. Hence, The study reveals that sugarcane with potato, sugarcane with onion and sugarcane with coriander combination may be suggested as intercropping with sugarcane for non mill zone area of Sherpur district (AEZ 8) to get interim benefit from the same piece of land.
