pit size is 2 feet dia

here enough light and air due to 1.2 M spacing either side

here mortality rate is 42 %

single bud and tissue culture planting is a failure history

fertigation is done till 10 months duration
convention method you use 30000 double budded sets ie. 60000 number of buds and inter row spacing is 0.9 Meter and sets are planted with overlapping sets arrangement
@65% germination , it gives 39,000 viable buds which multiply in 1:3 ratio giving total canes of 117000. @ 40 % mortality , it gives total viable cane of 70,200 canes with mother cane, secondary and tertiary cane ratio of 1:3:2
11700 mother cane
35100 secondary cane
23400 tertiary cane
primary / mother cane @/1 kg average with gives 11.7 MT
secondary cane @ 0.8 kg average weight gives 28.08 MT
tertiary cane @ 0.6 kg average weight gives 14.040 MT
so your total yield per acre will be 53.82 MT
