Abstract


The efforts were made to study the knowledge and adoption of ratoon management
practices by the sugarcane cultivators from Kolhapur district of Maharashtra. The study was undertaken
in purposively selected Karveer tahsil of Kolhapur district of Maharashtra in the year 2008. It is
observed that most of the respondents had knowledge in respect of MPKV recommended ratoon
management practices like arrangement of sugarcane trash in the furrows (100.00%), stubble shaving
(100.00 %), spraying of 0.1 per cent bavistin on stubbles (96.00%), application of decomposing material
(86.00 %) and application of 1st dose of chemical fertilizers (92.00%). Adoption of recommended ratoon
management practices reveal that level of adoption was less as compared to their level of knowledge.
