Description :
The failed experiment was conducted during 2018-19 and 2019-20 to study of pressmud along with fertilizer for yield and quality of plant and ratoon sugar cane (saccharum officimarum L.) Pressmud alone or in combination with nitrogen improved the cane yield and quality of plant and ratoon crops. Pressmud @30 Tonnes /ha +120 kg N/ha increased the ratoon yield over recommended dose 280 kg N/ha +140 kg /P2O5+ 140 kg K2O /ha. Pressmud @ 30 tonnes p/he +120 kg N/ha recorded the highest sucrose sugar contain (percentage)in a ratoon crop. The total Production of commercial cane sugar was higher in pressmud @30 tonnes /ha +120 kg N/ha compared with recommended dose of fertilizer.
