Abstract
The aim of this study was to find out the farm mechanization status for saccharum officinarum (sugarcane) from the selected area of the study Narsinghpur, (M.P.) India.
Saccharum officinarum (sugarcane) was an important cash crop and it was cultivated between 32°N to 32°S latitude covering more than 90 countries of the world. India contributing 19.98% of the total world production was the second largest producer of sugarcane next to Brazil. Saccharum officinarum (sugarcane) was usually planted in the rainy period, between January and March, to be harvested in the following crop season, causing a productive system deficit of one year. Saccharum officinarum (sugarcane) was more labour intensive requiring about 3300 man-hrs per hectare for different operations. Considering the present trend of availability of labour for sugarcane production, it has been experienced that the use of modern machinery is inevitable.
The result was found after the study of selected area was better management of physical inputs, use of modern machineries for planting, intercultural operation and harvesting, timeliness of operations, saving in unnecessary tillage, quality seed, use of superior chemicals for plant protection, uniformity of water use resulted into a great positive effect which can be seen by output yield. The contribution of human and animal hours for bullocks farming of sugarcane was 3985 hr for man, 255 hr for bullock pair and for mechanized cultivation of sugarcane the contribution of human energy was recorded 3199 hr for the production of saccharum officinarum (sugarcane) in Narsinghpur.
