As climate change continues to impose threats on sugarcane crops in Pakistan, farmers need to take note of these practices to combat the decreasing production of the said crop.
- Do not feed sugarcane crops during extreme weather conditions because it will not maximize the benefits of fertilizers.
- Moreover, feed fertilizers to crops when the temperature is between 15-30 degree centigrade to boost production and maximize the sugar content.
- Also, farmers need to mix granules in irrigation water to prevent risks of poison to birds.
Aside from this, a research institute would help prepare and train farmers for high-yielding possibilities and less consumption of water. Furthermore, farmers can ask assistance in case threats of climate change would severely affect their crops.
