sugarcane produces multiple stalks. In the Fig. 1. Growth stages of sugarcane. Producers in Texas Lower Rio Grande Valley (LRGV) grow approximat acres of sugarcane, a crop with high water requirements (about 65 inches per year). Rainfall in semiarid South Texas supplies only a third of this need, so producers must irrigate. The objective of this chapter was to calculate water requirements for four crops: wheat, maize, rice and sugarcane grown in 17 governorates in Egypt under current climate and under the A1B climate.

It focuses on nine key plantation/industrial crops on which millions of people in the tropics and subtropics depend for their livelihoods (banana, cocoa, coconut, coffee, oil palm, rubber, sisal, sugar cane and tea). Linking crop physiology, agronomy and irrigation practices, this is a valuable resource for planners, irrigation engineers.

Influence of drip irrigation emission rate on distribution and drainage of water beneath a sugar cane and a fallow plot P.D. Ah Koon, P.J. Gregory, J.P. Bell Pages Sugarcane presents Irrigation of sugarcane and associated crops book tolerance to water deficit, due to its physiological adjustments, as well as due to the capacity of its root system to adapt to the new conditions of water stress in the soil.

In this chapter, irrigation methods in the sugarcane crop and the best practices in irrigation management. The book opens with a chapter on the factors that affect sugar cane growth.

This is followed by separate chapters on seedbed preparation, sugar cane planting, the nutrition and irrigation of sugar cane, drainage, weed control, flowering control, ripening and maturity, harvesting and transportation, and pest and disease Edition: 1.

Drag line irrigation is defined as an overhead sprinkler system, where sprinklers are connected by means of portable hoses and permanent or semi-permanent pipes to a pressurized water supply.

The system has been derived from the conventional sprinkler system of portable pipes in order to reduce labour requirement for its by: 4. This volume is intended for reference by the commercial sugar cane grower.

Disciplines are covered for the successful production of a sugar cane crop. A number of good books exist on field practices related to the growing of sugar cane.

Two examples are R.P. Humbert's The Growing of Sugar Cane and Alex G. Alexander's Sugarcane Physiology.4/5(3). Achieve Your Sugar Cane Crop Potential and More Consistent Production with Drip Irrigation.

Sugar cane is one of the most water intensive crops out there, but drip irrigation has made growing sugar cane easier and more productive over the years. Drip irrigation ensures a more consistent yield over time plus uniformity and more ratoon crops.

Abstract. Sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.), a major cash crop in India has a unique role in sustaining agro industrial economic growth.

Sugarcane being a long duration crop produces huge amount of biomass, and requires large quantity of water ( mm) and is mostly grown as an irrigated crop using surface irrigation.

Sugarcane and maize are the major crops produced in the region, and South Africa is the major producer with % (sugarcane) and % (maize) of the production in area is primarily linked with sugarcane crop and sugar or allied industries.

Since early 20th century, a lot of emphasis has been laid on the research and development (R&D) associated with sugarcane crop, which enabled the sugar industry to progress through years. Sugarcane (Saccharum spp. hybrid) is the prime source of sugar in India. Drip irrigation in sugarcane is a relatively new innovative technology that can conserve water, energy and increase profits.

Thus, drip irrigation may help solve three of the most important problems of irrigated sugarcane - water scarcity, rising pumping (energy) costs and depressed farm profits.

The results of research on the water relations and irrigation needs of sugar cane are collated and summarized in an attempt to link fundamental studies on crop physiology to irrigation practices.

And if it doesn’t rain for a few weeks, crops on even the best soils will start to show drought stress. Even in humid regions there can be stretches of dry weather that cause stress and reduce crop yield or quality. Irrigation, therefore, is an essential part of growing crops in many regions of the world.

Numerous books and documents have been written and published about the sugarcane crop, documenting cultivation practices associated with its culture. A vast majority of these describing agronomic practices are adequate in written text, but are inadequate in directing the reader about field practical skills in growing sugarcane.

Sugarcane is the most promising among renewable biofuel-producing crops. An adequate availability of water and nutrients, especially nitrogen (N), is of utmost importance. From the hypothesis that the source and the rate of N fertilization influence the N use efficiency of an irrigated soil–sugarcane system, this study aimed to evaluate the stalk and crop residues (pointer and leaves) yield.

Irrigation is the process by which water is supplied to crops at different intervals. The time and frequency of irrigation varies according to different seasons, crops, and soil types. There are various sources of irrigation such as wells, canals, rivers, dams, ponds, and lakes.

Two methods of irrigation which help in conservation of water are. Irrigation Recordingtoimprove water management. Agr~.Wa~rManage., A recording system that effectively uses all measured field irrigation data is described. The system presents figures that are quick and easy to evaluate to give an assessment of irrlgatlon performance and for isolating fields with irrigation problems.

South Africa’s irrigated sugar cane farming region was hard hit by the recent drought. This prompted Dr Abraham Singels, principal agronomist at the SA Sugarcane Research Institute, and his colleagues to begin researching options aimed at maximising water-use efficiencies in sugar cane irrigation.

Currently 75% of irrigated land is located in developing countries; by the year it is estimated that 90% will be in developing countries.Sugarcane being a long duration crop which requires more irrigation.

In sugarcane, Germination and grand growth phase are the two important periods which requires more irrigation. In India this period comes on summer months and availability of water is poor.
