Shortage and high wages of labour rank first followed by water scarcity.
Generally, sugarcane crop requires 6- 36 irrigation cycle depending on tropical or subtropical regions.
Water stress during the grand growth reduces both total yields as well as sucrose yield.
There would be a 70% yield reduction in the drought-affected sugarcane field.
cultYvate systems could easily impose water stress during the maturation phase which is a very important technique to increase sucrose yields.
Using cultYvate irrigation system, farmers are able to save water by 70% and also increase in yield by 50%.
Our systems have reduced 30% labour use and also brings down the total cost of sugarcane cultivation by 30%.
