Table 5 Effect of foliar application of biostimulant at 60 days after planting in sugarcane yield

From: The biostimulant manufactured using diazotrophic endophytic bacteria and humates is effective to increase sugarcane yield

  Stalk yield (Mg ha−1)
Control Foliar application
  1st ratoon
  55.2b 65.7a
Increase in relation to the control 19%
C.V. (%) 8.0%
  2nd ratoon
  72.2b 85.2a
Increase in relation to the control (%) 18%
C.V. (%) 4.5  
  1. The experiment was carried out using strip design with a large plot to simulate the crop conditions
  2. Average values followed by different letters are distinct by Fisher’s LSD test (p < 0.05). The increase in relation to the control was calculated by 100 * (x – y)/y, where x is the average of treatment and y is the average of control. C.V. (%) is the coefficient of variation of the experiment
