Estimated cost differences between whole-stalk and billet planting methods in Louisiana


, : Estimated cost differences between whole-stalk and billet planting methods in Louisiana. Journal American Society of Sugar Cane Technologists 24: 250-257

Sugarcane planting costs were estimated for four types of planting systems, namely hand planting, whole-stalk machine planting, and one-row and three-row billet planting. Planting ratios and labour requirements were determined from data collected from growers using the various planting methods. Whole-stalk planting ratios were 7.5:1 for hand planting and 5.5:1 for machine planting, while planting ratios for billet planters were 3.0:1.
