Effect of Inter-Row Spacing on Seed Cane Yield of Sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) Varieties at Metahara Sugar Factory, Ethiopia

Abstract:

Improving seed cane yield per unit area is one of the agronomic practices to attain the benefit of sugarcane production. However, Sugarcane varieties currently under production have not been studied in terms of inter-row spacing requirements to maintain optimum seed cane yield at Metahara sugar factory. Hence, a field experiment was conducted at Metahara Sugar factory during 2022/23 to evaluate the effect of variety and inter-row spacing on yield and yield components of seed cane of sugarcane. Treatments consisted of three cane varieties (B52-298, “Key Shenkora”, and C 132/81) and four inter-rows spacing (85 cm, 115 cm, 145 cm and 175 cm) which were arranged in a randomized complete block design in a factorial arrangement with three replications. The results showed a highly significant (p
