Effect of Different Nitrogen and Phosphorus Levels on Quantitative and Qualitative Traits of Sugarcane

Ehsanullah , Asif Iqbal and Khalid Iqbal

Studies pertaining to the response of different nitrogen and phosphorus levels on the yield and quality of sugar; revealed that the significant interactive effect of 200 kg N along with 150 kg P2O5, ha-1 resulted in the highest cane yield of 76.64 t ha-1. Increasing levels of nitrogen improved number of millable canes, plant height, cane length and harvest index; whereas CCS remained unaffected. However, increasing the phosphorus levels tended to increase number of millable canes m-2, cane len cane diameter, harvest index as well as CCS percentage.
