Abstract
A field experiment was conducted at farmer’s field in Varagurpet, Chidambaram taluk, Cuddalore district, Tamil Nadu during February 2021 to February 2022 to standardize the enriched bio digested bone sludge compost for maximizing the yield of sugarcane. It was observed that growth and yield components of sugarcane crop were remarkably influenced by application of various levels of bio digested bone sludge compost. Application of bone sludge compost @ 5 t ha-1 + pressmud compost @ 5 t ha-1 + balance N and K through fertilizers (T8) proved its excellence by registering superior growth characters of sugarcane viz., plant height, number of tillers clump-1 and dry matter production at various stages of observation and yield attributes viz., cane girth and single cane weight which resulted in higher cane yield of 185.12 kg ha-1. Considering the results of the present investigation it can be concluded that application of bone sludge compost @ 5 t ha-1 + Pressmud compost @ 5 t ha-1 + balance N and K through fertilizers registered highest values in growth parameters, yield attributes and thumping yield in sugarcane.
