We provide training on sustainable intensification of sugarcane production. Guiding average cane yield production higher than 100 th/a is our expertise and we firmly believe that by doing it right the yields can be further increased sustainably to over 200 th/a.
We undertake training at three levels:
1) Individual farmer: A farmer can contact us for a private consultation on his/her farm. We will visit the farm individually and in consultation with the farmer develop a customised site-specific package.
2) Group of farmers: Farmers within the same locality can form an informal group. We will visit the group to provide a region-specific generic production package that will benefit all farmers and visit a few farms for on-farm demonstrations.
3) Institution and organisations: We provide guidance to organisations such as sugar mills, NGOs, research organisations, peak industry bodies to help their members/beneficiaries receive sound and scientific guidance on high cane yields and sugar recovery.
Taking a people-centric learning approach we undertake on-farm demonstrations and studies on the farmers’ fields to investigate a wide range of topics. Some examples include crop geometry (spacing), effect of combination of agri-inputs, ways to reduce sett germination period and so on. This way the farmer is a co-investigator and it is up to them to decide what works for him/her through testing, observations and experiential learning.
We also undertake applied research for the institutions to showcase the best management practices, scrutinize the efficacy of varieties, cultural practices, agri-inputs in order to shortlist a package of practices that result in overall benefit.
