Plastic tea cups are filled with a mixture of soil , sand and compost and sugarcane buds are cut and placed inside.
Soil mixture is poured over the buds and covered .
A single bud .
Dense mulching with sugar cane leaves under process.
8 days old seedlings full of life .
One month old saplings ready for transplantation
I am about to transplant a sugarcane seedling in the wet field .
Two days after the transplant , the sapling is in good condition .
Green ground cover ( don't know the name of the weed ) starts to grow on its own .
Nice vegetative cover of the weed "Vazhukkai Keerai " but the sugarcane crops are dwarfed.
Sugarcane crops starting to grow slowly ( slow growth due to planting of saplings in the wrong season - immediately after peak summer)
