Sugarcane is a crop that grows slowly, covering the ground in 90 to 120 days. Because small sugarcane growers are unable to wait a longer period of time to reap the monetary gains from a sole sugarcane crop, take advantage of this by growing a variety of short-duration inter-crops, such as oilseeds, pulses, vegetables and spices, to gain interim returns. Inter-cropping pulses with sugarcane may result in decreased nitrogen fertilization costs and increased biological nitrogen fixation. The crop diversification strategy based on sugarcane is not covered in full in the crop production book currently in circulation. An effort has been made to gather pertinent data on sugarcane-based crop diversification system from various literatures. The examples are taken, as much as feasible, from Indian experience. Even complex issues have been simplified into concepts that are basic enough for readers to understand because the book is written in simple English. The authors of book chapters have made an effort to take into account the most current advancements in cropping systems based on sugarcane.
