TECHNOLOGIES GENERATED

  • HDPS of cotton cultivation is  proved for  its high potentiality  and productivity. The mean average   yield of 22.7  to 31.9 q/ha were registered under HDPS , which was 5.9 to 15.0 q/ha  higher as compared to conventional Bt cotton based production system. Inclined plate planter observed higher performance for HDPS sowing. Application Pre-em. pendimethalin @1.25 kg/ha a.i.  followed by  post emergence application (tank mixing ) quizalofop-ethyl@50 g/ha and  pyrithiobac  sodium  @ 75 g ai /ha at30  DAS  were standarised  as weed control measure
  • Cotton based multi tier intercropping systems was standardized.Multi tier system of cotton + radish + cluster bean + beet root    registered  the highest Relative Production Efficiency, Relative Economic Efficiency and Land Equivalent Ratio of 182.2%, 308.7 % and 2.2 respectively as compared to sole coton
  • Promoting of integrated cotton production technologies under NAIP cotton value chain project impacted that  area of ELS cotton  increased  from 6 acres to 352  acres  in the village cluster .  Higher seed cotton  yield realized by adopting ICPT led to  higher gross return (Rs 45, 914/acre), net return( Rs 32,652/acre) and benefit cost ratio (3.50).The economics of base line per acre arrived as Rs 18,220 as gross return , Rs 7, 317 as net return and benefit cost ratio of 1.67.
  • Low cost poly-tubes  lateral  based drip system was developed. The costs of polytube drip system was Rs. 31252, per hectare of land for using of 150, micron thickness of polytubes, which was cheaper by 57.8 % in comparison to existing dry system.
  • Yield maximization techniques was standardized for ELS cotton. The combination of chisel ploughing+drip fertigation + foliar spraying of specialty fertilizer (19:19:19 @ 1% at 75 and 105 DAS and 13:0:46 @ 1% at 90 DAS) found higher performance
  • Package of practices was developed for Bt cotton .Optimum time of sowing for Bt cotton is found to be from 15th August to 15th September at Coimbatore.Geometrical arrangement of plants in 75 cm between rows and 60 cm between plants registered significantly the highest seed cotton yield .Application of 125 % RD level fertilizers  was found optimum for  Bt hybrids.
  • Micronutrient studies concluded that ginning percentage  and uniformity ratio were significantly  enhanced by soil application of FeSO4   @ 50 kg/ha in Fe. deficit soil. Foliar application of Mg SO4 @ 0.5% on 60, 75 and 90 DAS and soil application of borax @5 kg/ha increased (18%) the seed cotton yield.
  • Critical period for supplementary irrigation to rainfed cotton was identified. Providing single irrigation at boll development stage increased yield at the rate of 3.0q/ha
