Moisture stress is one of the most important and wide spread limiting factors for successful sugarcane cultivation. However under severe stress, yield loss could be as high as 60-70 per cent. Trash mulching is one of the techniques to conserve the moisture. De-trashed and harvested sugarcane trash utilized as trash mulching. Experiment results revealed that mulching @ 3 t/ha and irrigation given in alternate furrows recorded higher cane yield in sugarcane under drought situations.
